To read

Thirty years have already passed since he founded his Ensemble Matheus and yet Jean-Christophe Spinosi has retained his youthful appearance coupled with a more than communicative energy. We remember the time when this Corsican by birth, before he took up residence in Brest, was feverishly distributing his first recordings, of Vivaldi concertos. Vivaldi was for a long time his artistic thread and he offered many pieces in the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées (including Fida ninfa, Griselda, Juditha, Gloria and Nisi dominus) before triumphing with Orlando furioso surrounded by two of his oldest accomplices, the contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux and the countertenor Philippe Jaroussky. Always on the lookout for new places and new encounters, he likes to imagine concerts that combine classical music with other repertoires. The concert celebrating his ensemble's thirtieth anniversary will thus be an opportunity to rediscover some of the 'hits' of Vivaldi, as well as some classics from French and American music. Under the guise of a baroque violinist of his origins, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, with the complicity of his musicians, artist friends and surprise guests, has decided to take us on a great "extra-ordinary" lyrical evening.
