Meeting beetwen Oriental music and Ancient Music
The Ensemble Les Turqueries is born to create a meeting beetween the music of the Orient and Western ancient music.
While these two culture might sometimes seem far apart, they have always been intimately linked, notably in great cities like Venice and Constantinople.
Through the repertoire they offer, the young musicians of this ensemble highlight the points of contact between the musics of these two cultures: ornamentation, improvisation, rhythmic and melodic modalities, temperament, oral tradition...
We will then realise that what could seem so distant is in fact so close…

Sacha Dessandier-Volkoff : baroque cello, song
Simon Waddell : baroque guitar, théorbo
