A “garden of voices” with Les Arts Florissants

On Tuesday, March 10th, the French musical ensemble Les Arts Florissants  performed “Jardin à l’italienne”,  with soloists of the Jardin des Voix 2015 at the  Melbourne Recital Centre – a performance which highlighted the Baroque Italian style of the 16th to 18th centuries, showcasing talent directed by famous musical director  William Christie.

The Ambassador of France to Australia, His Excellency Mr. Christophe Lecourtier, was in attendance, along side the Honorary Consul Mrs. Myriam Boisbouvier Wylie, who after enjoying the works of Cimarosa, Scarlatti, Handel and Vivaldi, enjoyed a lovely evening in the Italian garden.
