Les Violons du Roy
Les Violons du Roy takes its name from the celebrated court orchestra of the French kings. It was founded in 1984 by Bernard Labadie and continues under music director Jonathan Cohen to explore the nearly boundless repertoire of music for chamber orchestra in performances matched as closely as possible to the period of each work’s composition.
The concert will include works from the classical period, Mozart and Mendelssohn, and Baroque period with a Handel Trumpet Concerto and conclude with the 4-Seasons Concerto by Vivaldi with different soloists from within the orchestra. Les Violons du Roy’s Music Director and Conductor, Jonathan Cohen, will be performing on a Dowd two manual harpsichord.
