Biography

Formed in 1999 by the French organist Frédéric Desenclos, Ensemble Pierre Robert’s repertoire focuses on the French baroque composers of the Grand Siècle, ie the 17th century. The name of the ensemble pays tribute to one of the most acclaimed composers of his time. Pierre Robert was a ‘sous-maître de la Chapelle du Roi’, a task which he shared with another praised composer, Henry Du Mont, between 1662 and 1683. Sunk into oblivion, he is one of the many composers of ‘motets’ which Ensemble Pierre Robert wishes to bring back to life. The ensemble performs extensively in France and abroad as part of the Académie Bach d’Arques-la-Bataille, St-Michel-en-Thiérache, La Roque d’Anthéron, Couperin, Colla Voce in Poitiers, Paris Art Sacré, Utrecht and Lufthansa Baroque Music festivals as well as prestigious venues such as the Cité de la Musique in Paris, Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Le Carreau de Forbach, La Passerelle de Niort, in Rochefort and Saintes’ theatres,and in Rennes Opera. The ensemble is also closely associated with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles where they regularly perform the results of their research into the interpretation of French Baroque music.

Members: Marcel Beekman, Robert Getchell, Robbert Muuse and Frédéric Desenclos
