William Christie et Les Arts Florissants ou la Passion du Baroque

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

Whether you're already a devotee of the astringent melodious sound of the French baroque, or you enjoyed the music of Tous les Matins du Monde and want to hear more, this portrait of conductor William Christie and his gifted group of players Les Arts Florissants should please and inform in almost equal measure. An American who has reawakened in the French a delight in their own musical heritage, notably through his performances of Charpentier and Rameau, Christie is seen here in rehearsal, in concert and at home, and is revealed as an aesthete, disciplinarian and enthusiast.
