Les Arts Florissants

58 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 21 June 2014

The Haut Jura Festival takes place every June in the Jura mountains that straddle France's eastern frontier with Switzerland. The Festival's centre is at Saint-Claude in France, but in today's Radio 3 Lunchtime concert of early music you can hear highlights from a concert given as part of last year's festival just over the Swiss border, at the pretty church in the village of Le Brassus. The acclaimed ensemble Les Arts Florissants with their Associate Music Director Paul Agnew perform Italian music: their programme centres on Monteverdi - madrigals from the fifth of the eight books of madrigals he published - and also features music by his Italian contemporaries Luca Marenzio and Emilio de' Cavalieri.
