Archivolte (Archivolt) : decorated moulding or fretwork on the inside of an arched opening.
The choice of this name is a reminder of the architectural dimension of all music, as well as the refinement of ornamentation so dear to baroque composers.
Jointly initiated in May 2014 by Marie Lerbret, Mathilde Blaineau and Louise Bouedo-Mallet, L’Archivolte explores the repertoire of early music, from medieval times to the baroque age, offering programmes exclusively played on period instruments.
As an ensemble, the three musicians have always focused their work on the specific demands of a reduced format, a suitable approach to the challenges of chamber music. They are regularly invited at the musical seasons of a number of venues, such as Temple du Change in Lyon, Couvent de la Tourette at Éveux, and also perform at festivals, Bel Air, Les Concerts d’Anacréon, Nyons en Scène, CMI Bach…
Besides, eager to experiment with transdisciplinarity, the musicians have expanded their core ensemble, to work out a project dedicated to Bach’s cantatas, at the crossroads between music, musicology and philosophy, teaming up with « Le Collège Supérieur », a Lyon training centre.
The musicians of L’Archivolte view their various projects as so many interactive educational experiences, meant to attract a wider audience to the world of early music and renew the rather ritualistic environment of music performance.
