Le Banquet d'Apollon

Le Banquet d'Apollon
François Mützenberg
36 rue Sonnex
CH-1218 Le Grand-Saconnex
Suisse




The ensemble Le Banquet d'Apollon was founded in 2001 by François Mützenberg and is named after a collection of airs, published in London in various re-editions since the second half of the 17th century. In addition to the historical connection, the name also indicates the ensemble's intention to place their work, artistically and intellectually, in a context of everything festive, nourishing and refined. They are convinced, that as far as music is concerned, sensual pleasure reaches its highest dimension in combination with spiritual pleasure ... and vice versa!
Le Banquet d'Apollon covers a wide range of instruments of varying timbre including voice, viola da gamba, archlute, several models of recorders, as well as baroque musette and chalumeau.
Their original and attractive repertoire consists of the widely unknown hybrid between Italian Baroque music and traditional Celtic music (Scottish and Irish).

Members:
Lisette Aubert (viola da gamba)
François Mützenberg (recorder)
Gisèle Rime (voice)
Jonathan Rubin (lute)
