Le Miroir de Musique

Le Miroir de Musique is an ensemble specialised in the music of the late middle ages and Renaissance, from the golden age of the troubadours to the humanist movements of the 16th century. Directed by Baptiste Romain, the ensemble is based in Basel (CH) and brings together the most prolific of the new generation of early music performers, many of whom are graduates of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Le Miroir de Musique combines historically informed performance with rich sonorities and virtuosic instrumental practice.

 

The image of a "Mirror of Music" is borrowed from Jacques de Liège's treatise (Speculum Musicae), and reflects our goal of painting a vivid picture of medieval and Renaissance music, in a spirit of fidelity to the original sources.

 

Le Miroir de Musique has performed at the Early Music Festival Utrecht (NL), Laus Polyphoniae Antwerp (B), Rencontres du Thoronet (F), Festival de Lanvellec, Musicales du Trophée (La Turbie / Monaco), Montalbâne (D), Fiori Musicali Parma (IT), Forum Alte Musik Zürich (CH) Sastamala Gregoriana (FI), Fide & Amore (PL), Wonderfeel (NL), Festival Espazos Sonoros (Galice, E), Musiksommer am Zürichsee (CH), Radovljica Festival (SL), Song of our Roots Jaroslaw (PL), Siglurfjördur Festival (IS) Nuits de Septembre, Liège (B), CIMM St Guilhem-le-Désert, and in numerous concert series such as Freunde Alter Musik in Basel (CH), Les Goûts Réunis Lausanne (CH), Oude Muziek Netwerk (NL), Mischeli Konzerte Reinach (CH), Vocalises Belfort (F), Forum Alter Musik Augsburg (D), Les Riches Heures de Valère Sion (CH), Musique Ancienne à Sainte Marie Mulhouse (F), Voix et Route Romane Alsace (F), Sternschuppen Zürich (CH)...
