The musical director of Les Cris de Paris has designed for this occasion a beautiful programme around the birth of the Italian oratorio with Carissimi (Historia di Jephte) and Rossi (Oratorio per la settimana santa), its arrival in France through the intermediary of Charpentier (Denial of St. Peter). Alternating recitatives, airs and polyphonic chorales, these sacred dramas represent an ideal research situation in the company of young singers and instrumentalists.
For this Academy, are expected :
10 instrumentalists : 1 theorbo,1 harp, 1 organ, 1 harpsichord, 2 violins, 1 lirone; 2 violas da gamba; 1 violone
10 singers for the solo roles and for the chorus parts : 3 sopranos, 1 mezzo-soprano, 1 counter-tenor/contralto, 1 haute-contre/light tenor, 2 tenors, 1 baritone, 1 baritone-bass
Artists born after January 1989.
