The woods so wild

Sunday July 25th, 17:00 – Salle Gabriel Julliard

English instrumental music for recorder consort, from the Renaissance to Purcell.

Le Consort Brouillamini

At once singular, audacious and dynamic, Le Consort Brouillamini gathers five talented recorder players, all graduates of the Lyon CNSMD. The ensemble distinguished itself twice at international competitions, winning over the jury and also the audience: First Prize at the Concours International des Journées de Musiques Anciennes at Vanves in 2016, Audience Prize for the whole 2014/2015 musical season of Musée en Musique at Grenoble and First Prize and Audience Prize at the 2012 Concours International de Musique Ancienne at Gijon (Spain).
Released in May 2018,”Flûtes en fugue”, their first CD, devoted to their own transcriptions of works by J-S Bach, garnered a “Clic” from the May/June issue of the Classiquenews webzine and was hailed a number of times on France Musique, Europe 1, RCF and Radio Clásica. It has also won rave reviews from Le Monde magazine and the Opus HD webzine.
“The Woods so Wild “, their second CD, will be devoted to consort playing in England from the Renaissance to Purcell. Released under the Paraty label (distribution by Harmonia Mundi), it will be available in the coming Spring.
The ensemble has a keen interest for contemporary works. In February 2019, it records a creation by Sirah Martínez Alvarez for “Création Mondiale”, a France Musique broadcast hosted by Anne Montaron. Several other collaborations with composers are currently in the works, notably with young, talented composer Benjamin Attahir.
Le Consort Brouillamini regularly appears in France : Jeudis Musicaux de Royan, Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise, Sinfonia en Périgord, Toulouse les Orgues, Les Musicales de Guil Daurance, Festival Format Raisins, Festival des Festes Baroques, Festival de Valloire, Festival de Sablé sur Sarthe, Bach en Combrailles… as well as abroad: Gijón (Spain), Festival musicale Ecchi Lontani a Cagliari (Sardinia), Muzyka w Raju (Poland).
Le Consort Brouillamini is supported by ADAMI and the FCM.

In the Renaissance, all such instruments as viols, lutes, violins and recorders came in different sizes. A consort was most often composed of a single “family”.
