Our friend Adriana Alcaide is an incredible Catalan violinist and we are so proud to share her new international music project, Le Tendre Amour:
Taking its name from a prevalent theme of the age of Louis XIV, Le Tendre Amour is an energetic group of musicians who have been drawn together by their common dedication to performing music of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in a way that is inspiring to the audiences of today. Listen to us HERE.
Since their beginning, the emphasis has been in creating unusual programs, always with the aim of pleasing audience of all ages. See WEB Le Tendre Amour and Le Tendre Amour on FACEBOOK.
The members of Le Tendre Amour are quite international! Japanese soprano Michiko Takahashi, German baritone Bernhard Hansky, Catalan violinists Adriana Alcaide and María Gomis, American oboist Katy Elkin, French traverso player Sébastien Perrin , Mexican theorbo player Krishnasol Jiménez, Cuban gambist Lixsania Fernández and Argentinean harpsichordist Esteban Mazer will meet and work in the international language - music.
Verkami has opened the possibility to finance a part of our third CD that we will record this month, a tantalizing collection of the beautiful yet previously unrecorded French baroque cantatas by René Drouard de Bousset (1703-1760) and find out all about Le Tender Amour in Verkami here. We are counting on your help now, since it is only with your support that we can make this recording possible!
