Into the Winds" ensemble

Into the Winds is first and foremost a sound. A powerful, gripping, hypnotic and rare sound, carried by wind instruments with unique and colorful timbres from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The invigorating breath and vibratory energy they transmit are a source of journeys, bridges and passages, inviting us to an immersive and sensory experience in time and space. In this way, between East and West, past and present, connoisseurs and the simply curious are swept up in moments that are as intimate, sensual and refined as they are surprising, spectacular and grandiose. In a process of research, creation and reinvention, combining secular and sacred music, dance and song, Into the Winds touches the imagination of its audience by telling stories that are as singular as they are universal. From the gothic blast of trumpets filling the first cathedrals to the songs of troubadours extolling courtly love and chivalric virtues, from the dazzling sound of great oboes enlivening balls and festivals to the nonchalant virtuosity of tambourines and recorders improvising in princely palaces, spirits and bodies are ceaselessly called to adventure, contemplation and discovery. Always in search of new sensations and risk-taking, Into the Winds communicates the spirit of an era with elegance, sobriety, authenticity and conviction, juggling instruments and grooving like a Big Band, with energy, joy and the pleasure of sharing.

La Camerata Chiara" ensemble

"Music is the food of love." William Shakespeare
A love of music drives the heart of the La Camerata Chiara ensemble, friendship sublimates its playing, the diversity of its members and instruments enriches its musical color, and its manifest desire to create a bridge between peoples gives depth to its horizon, always in search of the most historically accurate interpretation, Her openness to the constant discovery of new works characterizes her, her commitment to exploring little-practised avenues stimulates her, her taste for experimentation leads her to take risks that take her into unknown territory, and her joy in travelling the world of music with the public fulfils her, a journey into the Light.
"Music gives a soul to our hearts and wings to our thoughts." Plato
