XVIII-21, Le Baroque Nomade (FR)

Travels are an integral part of the musical approach of XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade. Every single time, the meetings are memorable: the concert in Kabul with Afghan musicians, right after the lifting of Taliban music prohibition will remain an unforgettable memory. A lasting cooperation with Chinese artists has allowed the cultures to observe, understand each other before attempting common experiences. A six yearlong partnership, still going on, with l’AGORA-La Marsa, in Tunisia, created the possibility of long term project about the musical exchanges between both banks of Mediterranean Sea. 15 years of common experience with Romanian/Hungarian artists from Transylvania led to a European international project, built by the cultural centre of Gödöllö Castel in Hungary, together with other partners. The musicological rigour must go hand in hand with a great vivacity on stage, XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade therefore attaches a great importance to the intensity of its concerts to make them unique, singular: presence of the dancer Merlin Nyakam, staging, interactions with the public, etc. We need it now more than ever, XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade keeps using music as a social link, a hyphen between cultures to keep bringing people together, to encourage understanding, dialogue, and peace. XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade already gave hundreds of concerts in France and abroad, in more than 45 countries, and published more than twenty critically acclaimed CDs: Télérama, France Musique, nomination to the « Victoires de la Musique », Classic News, Classica, Le Monde, Diapason, La Terrasse, etc. https://xviii-21.com/

Artists’ message to visitors

XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade invites the public to travel through time and space during its concerts. The Ensemble recreates in real time the cultural and historical connections between European repertoire and musical traditions from elsewhere: Chinese, Indian, Ethiopian, Turkish, in the footsteps of globetrotter musicians who traveled the world at a time when travels were creating mixed cultures. The Ensemble particularly worked on the historically proved meetings between European and extra European early music. Thanks to significant musicological work, XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade is part of the renewal in the interpretation of Baroque Music since its creation.


The mission statement of the ensemble

Since more than 25 years, Le Baroque Nomade stands out in the baroque musical landscape thanks to its humanist and pioneer approach. 1995, to bring to the light forgotten scores, Jean-Christophe Frisch created XVIII-21 Musique des Lumières, which became later XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade. A meaningful name, which immediately invites to the wide gap between the 18th century and the establishment in ours. An invitation to travel too: Jean-Christophe Frisch did not wait for the multiculturalism to become a trend to explore and bring the continents closer, to remind also that music has always allowed the mutual discovery of cultures and ideas.
