MUSIC VIDEOS & ALBUM TRAILERS
The Consort is a chamber music ensemble that brings together young musicians who have an interest in historically informed interpretation and who share a common sensibility and enthusiasm. Conceived by the harpsichordist and fortepianist Justin Taylor soon after his victory at the International Musica Antiqua Harpsichord Competition in Bruges, the ensemble takes pleasure in championing repertories as varied as the trio sonata, Romantic chamber music with a fortepiano, and Baroque vocal music.
The young ensemble has already performed in Paris (at the Hôtel de Soubise, the Petit Palais, the Singer-Polignac Foundation), at the Easter Festival in Deauville, at the Dijon Opera, in Rouen (at the Corneille Chapel), at the Fringe Festival in Utrecht (Netherlands), at the Festival of Pont-Croix, at the Festival of Saint-Michel en Thiérache, at the Misteria Paschalia Festival in Kraków, and at the Anacreon Festival in Angers. The Consort has also been featured on the “Génération Jeunes Interprètes” show on the national radio station “France Musique”.
The Consort works closely with the mezzo-soprano Eva Zaïcik. During a residency at the Cité de la Voix in Vézelay, they deepened their approach to eighteenth-century French vocal music. This exciting work on French cantatas will lead to the recording of a first disc for the prestigious Alpha Classics label. The ensemble is currently in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation in Paris.
