Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien

Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien

Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, founded and directed by François Lazarevitch, sing and play early music.

Founded by François Lazarevitch in 2005, the ensemble Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien takes its name from the Confrérie Saint-Julien-des-Ménétriers, an important musicians' guild founded in Paris in the Middle Ages. From the early fourteenth to the late eighteenth century, the guild brought together musicians who were also dancers (embodying the sacred union of music and dance) and who performed music of oral tradition as well as written compositions.

The ensemble Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien is developing a repertoire that is the result of deep and thorough research, thus opening up a musical field that is both unusual and creative.

With the same curiosity Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien explore little-known repertoires, such as those of the airs de cour (Et la fleur vole), early Scottish music (For ever Fortune) and brunettes (À l'ombre d'un ormeau), as well as works from the great repertoire, by composers such as Lully, Charpentier, Bach and Telemann.
