Les Violons du Roy takes its name from the celebrated court orchestra of the French kings. Founded in 1984 by Bernard Labadie, the group continues under music director Jonathan Cohen to explore the nearly boundless repertoire of music for chamber orchestra in performances matched as closely as possible to the period of each work’s composition. 

Based in Québec City’s Palais Montcalm since 2007, Les Violons du Roy builds on its worldwide reputation through countless concerts and recordings. The group has performed dozens of times throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia, and collaborated with such world-renowned soloists as Isabelle Faust, Julia Lezhneva and Marc-André Hamelin. As of this year, the group has released 36 recordings that have received widespread critical acclaim.

“The 14 string players plus harpsichord performed with such unity of purpose that one might think they were a single instrument.”
