Praised for “ravishing, exhilarating, and uniquely beautiful” (BBC Music Magazine) performances, the French ensemble Le Consort likens itself to an early-music version of a string quartet—a close-knit group of four young musicians celebrated for bringing fresh vitality to Baroque chamber repertoire. Co-directed by harpsichordist Justin Taylor and rising star violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte, Le Consort claimed both first prize and the audience prize at the 2017 Loire Valley International Early Music Competition, chaired by William Christie. Langlois de Swarte has entered the limelight as an exciting new voice on Baroque violin, captivating audiences with his seemingly effortless blend of control and abandon. The program is a whirlwind tour through Italy, England, Germany, and France, featuring two magnificent settings of La Follia—arguably the period’s most recognizable and enduring melody.
