On Thursday August 1st at 7 pm, Musique Royale presents “Bach au salon”, featuring the period ensemble Pallade Musica, who will recreate the intimacy of the master’s superb original compositions at the time they were performed. For this performance, the artistic directors of Pallade Musica have created original transcriptions of Bach’s beautiful works including his trio sonatas for organ, cello suites, and more, transcribed for recorder, violin and harpsichord. Imagine yourself in the middle of the Bach family, in their living room, one night…

About Pallade Musica

Pallade Musica (Musique d’Athéna) unites some of the best musicians from the vibrant Montreal Baroque scene. Co-directed by Tanya LaPerrière, violin, and Vincent Lauzer, recorder, the ensemble stands out with impressive interpretations based on research and exploration, with performances praised by critics as having “spectacular virtuosity” (Tom Strini Blog) and a “tremendous sense of ensemble” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

The ensemble has won prestigious awards since its creation, first in New York (United States) and then in Europe, Utrecht (Holland).

In addition to its annual Montreal season, the ensemble has toured several times in the United States, Colombia and Canada. The members of Pallade Musica perform regularly with internationally renowned early music ensembles, while pursuing careers as soloists and teachers. Pallade Musica recorded a first album devoted to Venetian Baroque music — released on the ATMA label in 2014 — which earned it in the same year a nomination for the Opus Awards. The ensemble also released its second album on the same label, this time a world premiere with the music of the mysterious Schieferlein! This album earned another Opus Award nomination in 2018. Pallade Musica is also regularly nominated for Opus Awards for their Montreal concerts, for their expressive and elegant interpretations of medieval, renaissance, and baroque music.
