Info for Moment musical

The ensemble Thélème shows us surprising parallels between two composers of quite different provenance: The Viennese early-romantic Franz Schubert and the French Renaissance master Clement Janequin. Both composers are known for their songs and chansons. There are also similarities between the careful treatment of the text, the well-thought-out selection of the authors and the refined setting of the texts with detailed accompaniment. Love and contemplation were often used as topics. Also, both masters seemed to have a chronic shortage of money. Thélème is a professional ensemble that specializes in the performance of early music. The ensemble was founded in 2013 by its Artistic Director, Jean-Christophe Groffe, and the ensemble is largely made up of musicians who graduated from the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. The name of the ensemble refers to the utopia described by François Rabelais at the end of his novel Gargantua. Thélème is a hexagonal five-story Renaissance chateau built with precious materials. At Thélème, there is no outer wall, no clock. What is the point of worrying what time it is when we are not dependent on time, when we decide ourselves when we will get up, eat, work, or dedicate ourselves to the pleasure of conversation? The name alone says it all: the Greek “thelo” means “I want”, so thélème can be translated as “free will”.
