Le Poème Harmonique (Early Music Ensemble)
Artist's website: https://lepoemeharmonique.fr/
Le Poème Harmonique is an ensemble of young solo professional musicians founded by Vincent Dumestre with the intention to revive and promote some of the contents of ancient music, in particular of the 17th century.
By the use of rare instruments, such as the theorbo, the lirone, the tiorbino and the arpa tripla, Le Poème Harmonique succeeded in understanding the ways of expression in ancient music, as it must have been in the past and as it should always be. This means that in accompanying vocal music, as well as in playing instrumental music, the researched sound first of all is an expressive, authentic and poetic one - a musical way of interpreting the words and a poetic way of interpreting the sound of music.
