Bringing to life the grandeur and intimacy of quintessential 18th century chamber music
Les Ordinaires brings to life both the grandeur and intimacy of quintessential 18th century chamber music. A Baroque trio of critically acclaimed early music specialists, Les Ordinaires weaves the expressive timbres of the Baroque flute, viola da gamba, and theorbo into a conversational whole. Inspired by the original French masters of their instruments, Hotteterre, Forqueray, and de Visée, Les Ordinaires delights in finding the depths of human emotion couched within the formal and mannered style of the French Baroque period and seeking out its resonance in music of 18th-century Europe.
Members of the trio include Leela Breithaupt, Baroque flute; Erica Rubis, viola da gamba; and David Walker, theorbo, each of whom are well known experts in the field of Early Music and perform across the US and Europe.
