François-Xavier Roth founded his ensemble in 2003, and ever since has brought his inimitable sound to the demanding world of period instruments with razor-sharp accents, granite sonorities and incisive contrasts.
In 2013, for the 100th anniversary of the Rite of Spring, he was the first to conduct the piece with the instruments used at its first performance. He will repeat this performance in a Stravinsky-only programme that also includes The Firebird, the first ballet written by the young Russian exile when he arrived in Paris. Distinguished guest, the violinist Isabelle Faust, will bring a swinging touch to the captivating jazzy-baroque accents of the Violin concerto.
