Founded in 2016, Le Consort, is a leading baroque chamber ensemble co-directed by harpsichordist Justin Taylor and violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte. Comprised of four musicians they interpret the trio sonata repertoire with enthusiasm, sincerity, and modernity – bringing together compelling musical personalities in the service of chamber music from the repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. From Corelli to Vivaldi, from Purcell to Couperin, the dialogue between the two violins and the basso continuo displays a wealth of contrasts between vocality, sensuality and virtuosity. Le Consort takes this genre, the quintessence of baroque chamber music, and interprets it with a personal, dynamic, and colorful language. In 2017 they claimed First Prize and the Audience Prize at the Loire Valley International Early Music Competition, chaired by William Christie. Their recordings have earned numerous awards and extensive critical acclaim. In the 2023-24 season, Le Consort makes its North American debut with concerts in cities across the continent. The ensemble has performed extensively throughout Europe including; the Louvre Auditorium (Paris), the Dijon Opera, the Arsenal (Metz), Antwerp de Singel (Belgium); the Pau Casals Foundation (Spain); and at the Misteria Paschalia Festival in Krakow (Poland). They have also been featured on numerous broadcasts. Le Consort is in residence at the Banque de France, the Singer-Polignac Foundation, and the Abbaye de Royaumont.
