The ensemble Amarillis is a baroque ensemble with variable geometry, laureate of three international first prizes and distinguished by the 'Révélations classiques de l'ADAMI'. Amarillis collaborates regularly with the best singers of its generation and unites, in the same chamber music spirit, talented and confirmed instrumentalists. Amarillis performs regularly on the best stages around the world, with recent and upcoming concerts in the United States, Ukraine, and France. Releasing its 17th album 'Bach, Telemann: Effervescence Concertante' date in March 2017, the ensemble's discographie continues to receive glowing reviews from the international press.
Georg Philipp Telemann and Johann Sebastian Bach, friends in both heart and mind, liked to transgress established rules and explore, each in his own way, the forms and styles of the Baroque era. Hence our desire to bring them together in this programme without, of course, setting one against the other in any way!
