An American in Thiré

Vol. 23 No. 1; January 2017

ON THE COVER: Was it coincidence that in 1979, when William Christie chose a name for his newly formed Paris-based Baroque ensemble, he found one that made reference to flowers, Les Arts Florissants? Deliberately or not, the moniker foretold the marvelous estate that has become the conductor’s primary home and haven, where he has hosted thousands of visitors for days of Baroque music and the pleasures of the garden. I spent three enchanting days in August 2016 at the beginning of the eight-day festival, the fifth edition of Dans les Jardins de William Christie in Thiré, France.

Vol. 22 No. 3; September 2016

It’s a pity that so few of them survive.
