Hervé Niquet and Le Concert Spirituel present the flagship program of their repertoire. Touring all over the world and in the most prestigious venues, this exceptional production, winner of the Edison Award, is an opportunity for the ensemble to continue exploring all facets and nuances of two of the most illustrious works in the Baroque repertoire: Handel's Water Music & Music for the Royal Fireworks.

At the forefront of the latest organological research on stringed instruments and wind, Le Concert Spirituel has acquired, notably thanks to the use of strings in non-spun gut strings of equal tension, its recognizable sonority, its dynamism and its bright and shimmering colors, and has regained all the power and fullness of the sound of ancient instruments, to revive the magic of the princely festivities, in the purest bar tradition
