France under the rule of Louis XIV embraced dance as the ultimate expression of aristocratic refinement. French composers and artists aimed to stimulate intellectual engagement through sensory experiences, appealing to both the senses and the mind. Many composers from outside of France adapted French elements such as ballet as well as graceful French-style ornamentation in their works. 

Performing music by French court composers such as Jean-Baptiste Lully, Michel-Richard Delalande, Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Francois Couperin, Jean-Féry Rebel, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Marin Marais, Jean-Baptiste Forqueray as well as music of non-French Baroque composers such as George Frideric Handel and Johann Jakob Froberger who integrated French elements in their works. Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble will collaborate with Pierre-François Dollé, dancer and choreographer, to offer you a feast of French baroque splendour.

Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble ( Hong Kong ) focus on presenting European classical music from the 16th to the 18th century on period instruments. While historically informed practice is the guiding principle in our performance, we look for innovations through tradition to promote early music.
