Les Sauvages is a Paris-based chamber music ensemble consisting of accordion player Vincent Gailly and viola player Antonin Le Faure, who also plays the viola d’amore. Together they aim to build bridges between early and contemporary music by approaching these two repertoires with a historically informed attitude.

Les Sauvages are pleased to present a recital revolving around some of the most famous Ayres by John Dowland, an alumnus of the University of Oxford and one of the greatest composers of lute music of the Elizabethan era. The programme of this concert at the Maison française in Oxford also encompasses more recent works by Philippe Hersant and Gérard Pesson, French composers who both seek to break down the boundaries between past and present music.
