From the complicity of Margaux Blanchard and Sylvain Sartre at the Schola Cantorum in Basel was born the project of the Shadows. Two timbres, two personalities, the same curiosity for open repertoires. The dual leadership of the ensemble reflects its quest for diversity, renewal and modernity. Intergenerational and committed, the Ombres project develops, from chamber music to opera to theatre for young audiences, in a quest for excellence and respect for the ethical values dear to its founders.
Concerned about its relationship with the public, the ensemble places emotion at the heart of its proposals. The energy of the gesture, the breath of the dialogue, the work of the light, the choice of repertoires and rhythm: the poetry of the performance shapes a programme whose harmony and architecture must move the spectator.
This human, sensory and multidisciplinary approach to the ancient repertoire reveals the echoes of our present with the past. By putting it on stage in music and images, Les Ombres inscribes the Baroque into the contemporary world and makes the great issues of our time resonate in the light of past centuries. The colours, atmospheres, poetry and harmony that emerge from their creations accompany the spectator in the discovery of a little-known repertoire and invite him to contemplate this overwhelming concordance of times.
Among the talented and intergenerational team that has become loyal over the last ten years are Marie Perbost, Eléonore Pancrazi, Judith van Wanroij, Chantal Santon, Emmanuelle de Negri and Joao Fernandes, Mathias Vidal and Alain Buet in productions given on the stages of prestigious opera houses and international festivals (Opéra Royal de Versailles, Folle Journée, Opéra National de Montpellier, Grange de Meslay, Auditorium du Louvre, Grange au Lac d'Évian, Festival d'Ambronay, Freunde Alter Musik Basel, York, Utrecht, Bergamo, Tokyo,. ..).
Their recordings have received critical acclaim: 4T TTTT Télérama, Diapason d'or de l'année, Choc de Classica, Quobuzissime, Coup de coeur du jardin des critiques de France musique, Supersonic Piz-zicatto,... Les Ombres record for the Mirare and Château de Versailles Spectacles labels.
