Since its formation in 2008, the Ensemble Correspondances has devoted itself chiefly to French sacred music of the seventeenth century. Brought together by Sébastien Daucé during their studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique (CNSM) de Lyon, the musicians of Correspondances pursue this work (focusing notably on Marc-Antoine Charpentier) with infectious enthusiasm today.
To date the Ensemble Correspondances has appeared at such French festivals as Saintes, Fontevraud, Musique & Mémoire, Sablé, Royaumont, and Sinfonia en Périgord. It has also performed at the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht and in Rome, Nuremberg, Foligno, and Fribourg, and has toured Japan and Colombia. The ensemble has given several concerts for such radio stations as the Bayerischer Rundfunk, Radio France, and the Radio Suisse Romande. Its most recent engagements have taken it to Royaumont, the Ambronay, Lanvellec, and Pontoise festivals, and Rome, Hamburg, and Hong Kong.
