Les Jeunes solistes and Rachid Safir perform works by Campo, Debussy, Monteverdi, Ravel and Vivier.
Travel through time with Les Jeunes solistes! Acclaimed the world over for the quality of its performances, this French vocal ensemble has decided to programme seventeenth and twentieth-century love songs right next to each other. With performances of works by Monteverdi, Debussy, Ravel, Campo and Vivier for small vocal ensemble (8 voices), Les Jeunes solistes delivers a purity of voice that transports listeners… to the point of loosing track of time. Founded 20 years ago, Les Jeunes solistes has become an internationally recognized example of excellence through performances of vocal polyphony from the Renaissance to the present.
