Ensemble Orford

Ensemble Orford

The idea for the Bataclan ensemble was sparked by the shared curiosity and creativity of two old friends, bassoonist Mathieu Lussier and bandoneonist Denis Plante. They were soon joined in their project by harpsichordist Catherine Perrin. With its first abum, released in 2009, Bataclan created a unique blend of sound and immediately won praise from the public and from critics.



The Latin-American flavoured repertoire of this first recording has been heard at numerous festivals in Quebec (Lanaudière, Îles du Bic, Musique Multi Montréal) and in New Brunswick (Baie-des-chaleurs). A tango Nuevo version of La forêt des mal-aimés by Pierre Lapointe contributed to the success of the album, and gave the trio access to radio and TV. While concertizing, the group's two composer-arrangers (Plante and Lussier) have continued to create. Now, with the second Bataclan albums, they are heading down a new path inspired by the image of the Dandy.
