A specialist in the baroque repertoire, Philippe Gagné has performed at many of the world’s great venues and with many renowned ensembles including: Les Talens Lyriques, Tafelmusik, Les Violons du Roy, Arion Orchestre Baroque, Ensemble Masques, L’Orchestre symphonique de Québec, Les Délices, and L’Harmonie des saisons. Philippe is a highly recognized interpreter of the French Baroque repertoire, as well as of the music of J. S. Bach. This past February he travelled to France at the invitation of the Ensemble Masques to participate in the Festival La Folle Journée de Nantes to perform a selection of French baroque opera arias. He then made two appearances as part of the Complete J.S. Bach cantatas – Year 8 in Bourgie Hall of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; first with the Harmonie des Saisons at the end of February, then at the end of March with the Orchestre Métropolitain under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
