Inspired by the legacy of illustrious french brass musicians such as Maurice André or Michel Becquet, the Quintet Bacchus is one of the new ambassadors of playing “à la française”. Offering eclectic programs, combining classical, jazz and popular music, the Quintette Bacchus has never ceased to amaze and seduce audiences, in France and abroad.
All five musicians of the Quintet, winners of numerous international competitions, decided in 2014 to form a brass quintet to highlight the most beautiful lines of the original repertoire but also develop a new repertoire, symphonic and pianistic, through personal arrangements. Bacchus has performed at numerous concerts and festivals (Les Invalides (Paris), Festival de Pontlevoy, Eurocuivres, Vox Musica festival, Jeudis Musicaux de Royan, Bergerac Organ Festival… It has also recently appeared on the Radio France Musique for Gaëlle Le Gallic’s broadcast “Génération Jeunes Interprètes”.
The Quintet also builds artistic partnerships with other musicians. They have developed a close link with the organist Louis Jullien with whom they created a program Brass Quintet and Organ around Mussorgsky’s «Pictures at an Exhibition» (on tour). During several occasions, Bacchus Quintet has also been accompanied by the french military band La Musique des Gardiens de la Paix in a concerto for brass quintet and concert band. With this experience and a constant desire for artistic encounter, the Quintet now offers concerts across France and abroad moments of musical sharing through joint concerts.
