Baroque music

Music lovers will be able to enjoy the essence of French baroque music presented with antique instruments at a concert in Beijing.

An ensemble of 12 male solo voices and seven instruments offer the audiences an evening based on Requiem by Pierre Bouteiller. Herve Niquet revived the name to create his ensemble in 1987. The trademark of the group is in taking on ambitious and original projects, specializing in French ritual music with a parallel focus on rediscovering a lyrical tradition.

7:30 pm, June 9. Forbidden City Concert Hall, west side of Tian'anmen, inside Zhongshan Park, Beijing. 010-6559-8306.
