In this new release, Vincent Dumestre’s Le Poème Harmonique immerses us in the France of the second half of the 16th century, which witnessed the emergence of new centers of artistic activity. Through this music, still insufficiently known, this program invites us to discover a refined poetic and musical universe, witness to a French Renaissance at its apogee, with works by composers such as Pierre Cléreau, Guillaume Costeley, Adrian Le Roy, and Didier Le Blanc. Once again, Vincent Dumestre, an uncontested master of this repertoire, has surrounded himself with the finest singers and instrumentalists, a loyal troupe that exhumes unusual musical treasures.
