The baroque ensemble Les Ombres, a pioneer in the professional integration of young artists, is launching with Les Nuits Musicales d'Uzès, the Young baroque european orchestra.
A European professional integration project run by Les Ombres, the JOBE brings together each year artists (instrumentalists, singers, actors and/or dancers) who are students at higher conservatories or who are in the process of becoming professional artists, around an instrumental or operatic project.
Carried out in two stages, the Young baroque european orchestra provides for :
– a training period with coaches who are members of Les Ombres,
– a period of concerts in festivals in France and Europe.
The project of Les Ombres emerged from the close rapport between Margaux Blanchard and Sylvain Sartre at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Two timbres, two personalities, the same curiosity for forgotten repertories. The joint direction of the ensemble reflects its quest for diversity, renewal and modernity. Mindful of its relationship with audiences, the ensemble Les Ombres places emotion at the heart of its artistic propositions: the poetry of the performance shapes a programme whose harmony and architecture must move the spectator. Nevertheless, its ‘historically informed’ practice is unquestionably in the musical tradition of the pioneers of the Baroque. Les Ombres carries out research projects into the influence of French music throughout Europe and participates in the rediscovery of masterpieces of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
NUITS MUSICALES D'UZÈS
A city of Art and History, Uzès is a privileged place for early music. From the cathedral to the duchy, via the temple and the new concert hall “L’Ombrière”, Les Nuits Musicales d’Uzès offers an outstanding artistic programme throughout the year.
The festival is a privileged partner of Les Ombres since 2015.
