- Founder of the period instrument ensemble Les Talens Lyriques, Christophe Rousset is a musician and conductor specialising in Baroque and Classical repertoire. Particularly inspired by European music of the 17th and 18th centuries, Rousset has rediscovered forgotten operas such as Antigona by Traetta, Armida Abbandonata by Jommelli and La Grotta di Trofonio by Salieri. His many recordings include the complete harpsichord works of François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, d’Anglebert and Forqueray. With his award-winning ensemble Les Talens Lyriques, his great successes on disc include Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Mozart’s Mitridate, Persée and Roland by Lully.
