Info for L'Europpe: French Baroque Cantatas

Towards the end of the 17th century, the social and musical forces that had prevented the spread of Italian influence for almost an entire century gradually lost their stranglehold on the music scene. The prevalent desire to unite the Italian and the French styles resulted not only in the French cantata but also in the French sonata. The smooth contours and eschewal of sequential passages, which are a common feature of Italian music, differentiate the French cantata from its Italian role models. Combining typically French melodies and harmonies with the rhythmic buoyancy of the Italian style of music created a hybrid form (réunion des deux goûts), which François Couperin confidently described as "the «perfection of music."

Ensemble 392
Named after the French pitch for operas A = 392 Hertz, the ensemble is mainly interested in French literature of the 17th and 18th centuries. Since French music was increasingly influenced by its Italian counterpart during the 18th century, the connection between the Goût Français and the rival Italian taste is also an important topic for the work of the ensemble. Founded in 2011, the young ensemble since then regularly performs at prestigious locations such as the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music, the Händel-Haus Halle and the Konzerthaus Berlin. The unique cast of soprano, flute, theorbo / baroque guitar and harpsichord distinguishes the ensemble. Always searching for new timbres and extravagances the ensemble remains constantly with the latest trends.
