L'Harmonie des saisons' New York Premiere at Americas SocietyNew York, NY Tuesday, October 17, 2017
In their New York City debut, Québec-based ensemble L'Harmonie des saisons presents a program of rarely heard eighteenth-century French music for the pardessus de viole, the crowning glory of the viola da gamba family. The duo, comprising Mélisande Corriveau and harpsichordist Eric Milnes, has been praised for the virtuosity and imagination, and the set draws from Corriveau's extensive research into the instrument's repertoire. The duo's 2016 release Pardessus de viole (ATMA Classique) was awarded the 2017 OPUS prize for Album of the Year (Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music) from the Conseil Québecois de la Musique.
