French chamber choir to perform in Connoisseur Series
Accentus Chamber Choir, a professional choir of 32 singers from France, will perform as part of the College of Fine Arts Connoisseur Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, in Wiedemann Recital Hall.
Brought together in 1991 by artistic director Laurence Equilbey, Accentus is devoted to interpreting the rich repertoire of a cappella songs in chamber choir form. In reviving this tradition, Accentus mainly interprets masterpieces of the last two centuries according to their original formation.
Accentus performs under well-known Swedish choirmaster Eric Ericson.
The choir was hailed by critics as far back as 1994, when it made its first recording of the secular choir works of Poulenc and Ravel.
The choirs record of sacred works by Poulenc was rated ffff the equivalent of four stars by the critics of Télérama, a cultural magazine for radio, TV and arts.
