A unique orchestra composed of musicians from a new generation, playing each repertoire on the appropriate historical instruments: Les Siècles puts several centuries of musical creation into perspective in a relevant and unexpected way.
Often invited to perform worldwide in the most prestigious venues, Les Siècles is in residence in the Atelier Lyrique in Tourcoing as well as in the Aisne department, in the Hauts-de-France French region, and is an associate artist in the Cité de la Musique in Soissons. The orchestra is also an associate artist of the Théâtre du Beauvaisis, the Berlioz Festival in La Côte-Saint-André, the Théâtre-Sénart, the Théâtre de Nîmes and Les Musicales de Normandie festival.
Three times winner of the prestigious Deutschen Schallplattenkritik prize, and twice awarded with the Edison Klassiek prize in the Netherlands, it is several times the only French orchestra nominated for the Gramophone Classical Music Award, which it won in 2018, in “classical recording of the year” category. In France, Les Siècles won a Victoire de la Musique Classique and a Diamant Opéra as well as several Diapasons d'Or.
Les Siècles have been recording for the harmonia mundi label since 2018. They are currently recording the complete orchestral music of Berlioz, Ravel and Debussy and are beginning a new cycle dedicated to Mahler and the Second Viennese School.
In order to spread their passion for classical music to as many people as possible, the orchestra's musicians regularly organize educational activities in schools, hospitals and prisons.
