A Journey Through Baroque Europe

Paris-based Le Consort is a leading baroque chamber ensemble comprising four young musicians who interpret the trio sonata repertoire with enthusiasm, sincerity, and modernity. Making their U.S. debut in the 2023-24 season, join Le Consort for a whirlwind tour through Italy, England, Germany, and France, illustrating the immense expressive range and creativity of Bach, Vivaldi, Corelli, Purcell, Rameau, and others. The program features two magnificent settings of “Follia”—the era’s most recognizable melody, and one which still resonates today.


Antonio Vivaldi: Trio Sonata in G-minor Op. 1 No. 1

Giovanni Battista Reali: Violin Sonata Op. 2 No. 1 (Grave)

Arcangelo Corelli: Trio Sonata in C Major, Op. 4 No. 1

Jean-Phillipe Rameau: Extracts from Les Indes Galantes

Jean-François Dandrieu: Trio Sonata in G-minor, Op. 1

Corelli: Violin Sonata, Op. 5 No. 12, “La Follia”

Francesco Maria Veracini: Violin Sonata in A-Major, op 1 no 7 (finale)

John Eccles: “The Mad Lover”

Henry Purcell: Sonata of Four Parts in G minor, Z807

Rameau: Gavotte et Ses Doubles

J.S. Bach: Trio Sonata in G Major, BWV 1038

Bach: Andante, BWV 974

Vivaldi: Trio Sonata in D minor, Op.1 No. 12 (“Follia”)

“Ravishing, exhilarating and uniquely beautiful.”

BBC Music Magazine

“With its breathtaking interpretation, between virtuoso bubbling and sweet tenderness, Le Consort proves that the Baroque, even if it is Venetian, still has a lot of thrills to give us when it is played like this. ... Perfect alchemy.”


“Each new recording confirms these qualities which the listener savours: the ardour of youth, a masterly art of discourse and a permanent emotion which serves as a thread running through these masterpieces of the past.”

Res Musica

“With the same freshness, this young ensemble performs this beautiful music with brilliance and attention to detail, with formidable energy and a spectacular sound that illuminates it.”


“Undeniably excellent ... Bravi tutti.”
