Les Boréades

Boreas, Greek god of the north wind, son of the Titan Astraeos and of Eos, the goddess of the dawn, had two sons named the Boreades. Zetes, the more flighty of the two, was considered the explorer whereas Calais, the moodier son, was associated with the gentler turquoise sea.

The Ensemble Les Boréades de Montréal was founded in 1991 by Francis Colpron and few musician friends in order to share with the music-loving public their own passion for the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Les Boréades have chosen an interpretative approach in keeping with the spirit of the Baroque Era by abiding to the rules of performance practice as they know, and by playing on period instruments.
