Echoes of Persian sounds

This concert is a journey into the music and poetry of Persian culture in dialogue with the music of the Ottoman court and the French Baroque era.

The ensemble revisits some of the most beautiful rediscovered treasures of the Persian classical music from 16th and 17th centuries, linking them to the music of two great baroque composers, Marin Marais from the Court of Versailles (1656-1728) and Demetrius Cantemir from the court of Topkapi (1673-1723).

This program brings side to side contrasting yet harmonious musical traditions.
