Ensemble Baroque de Limoges (Instrumental Baroque Ensemble)

Founded: 1991 - Limoges, France

Ensemble Baroque de Limoges (Limoges Baroque Ensemble) (EBL), which Christophe Coin took over in 1991, provided him with the means to go still further in his personal research. Since then, Christophe Coin has shaped the ensemble to his requirements, with regular musicians who are eager to go along with him in his exacting re-reading of instrumental practice and Baroque scores.

Important moments follow on one from another: for example the recordings of the complete cantatas with violoncello piccolo by J.S. Bach, or projects in collaboration with the Centre for Baroque Music in Versailles. Likewise, the first symposium in Limoges, entitled ‘Amour et Sympathie’ and devoted to European and other instruments with sympathetic strings, will be followed by a series of international meetings in celebration of the viola da gamba, entitled ‘La 7e corde’ (The 7th string): they thus enable Christophe Coin to prove that, over and above his work as a gifted instrumentalist, he means to play his part in stimulating through on instrument making and playing techniques, which form the basis of musical life.
