Paris, 1665: a young composer leaves the Saint-Michel district to embark on a journey to Rome. The journey promises to be a long one, its stopovers rich in encounters for Marc-Antoine Charpentier. Conductor Sébastien Daucé and Ensemble Correspondances invite us on an imaginary recreation of that voyage of initiation, from Cremona to Rome, by way of Venice and Bologna. A journey in space, but also in time, through the sources of inspiration of a composer whose future works were to recall the colors of Italy – as the magnificent Mass for Four Choirs testifies.
