Led by countertenor Paulin Bündgen, the Céladon ensemble explores the early music repertoire with charm and fantasy, striving to reinvent the form of its concerts at each appearance.
Taking its name from the hero of Honoré d’Urfé’s Astrée, Céladon seeks to avoid the beaten tracks and enjoys surveying the repertoire linked with the countertenor timbre, between mediaeval, renaissance and baroque music. The ensemble is a regular guest of festivals and concert seasons, recognised for the quality of its interpretations and profoundly human relations with the audience.
The Céladon ensemble has made six recordings, several on the Ricercar label.
The world famous composer Michael Nyman wrote No Time in Eternity for Artistic Director Paulin Bündgen and l'ensemble Céladon in 2016.
