Les Violons du Roy
Taking its name from the renowned string orchestras of the French kings, Les Violons du Roy is at the heart of the music scenes in Montreal and Quebec City, where it has been in residence at the Palais Montcalm since 2007.
Often using copies of period bows, Les Violons du Roy specializes in the vast repertoire of music for chamber orchestra. This concert spans works from Handel to Glass.
Musical America exclaims about countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo: “This was not just perfectly laced vocalism, it was edge-of-your-seat drama, the kind of high-voltage, high-register male singing that comes once is a generation.”
This program features works by Handel and Glass.
