| Les Paladins

Since 2001, Jérôme Correas and Les Paladins have been exploring the dramatic musical repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, from Monteverdi to Mozart. As a harpsichordist and singer, Jérôme Correas has developed an innovative artistic approach based on the theatricality of the voice and the relationship between music and the performing arts, in both the operatic repertoire and religious music.
For their stage productions, Les Paladins work with directors from a wide range of artistic backgrounds (theatre, video, puppetry, dance, circus). In concert, Les Paladins perform with soloists such as Karine Deshayes, Sandrine Piau and Amel Brahim-Djelloul, in ensembles ranging from quartets to Mozart orchestras, in France and abroad.
Les Paladins have recorded fifteen albums, notably for Naïve, Alpha Classics, B Records and Aparté. They are also involved in cultural outreach and professional training for young artists.
