ABOUT US

CAFE ZIMMERMANN

 

Created in 1999, Café Zimmermann is at the forefront of the baroque concert in France and in Europe. Led by violinist Pablo Valetti and harpsichordist Céline Frisch, the ensemble brings together soloists who strive to revive the artistic emulation brought about by the establishment of Gottfried Zimmermann in Leipzig in the 18th century. Café Zimmermann performs in some of the most renowned concert halls and international festivals and his many collaborations are always under the sign of excellence.
The discographic recordings of Café Zimmermann arouse a real enthusiasm, in particular by the removed and contrasting interpretations of the concert music of J.S. Bach, rewarded by 5 golden tuning forks.

SUMMER 2021

LEIPZIGER VOLKSZEITUNG

Qui a entendu le sensationnel Café Zimmermann dans cette
musique, l’esprit brillant et enflammé de leur jeu, la profusion
de leurs couleurs, l’évidence avec lequel des virtuoses se mettent
ensemble pour former un ensemble qui joue de manière homogène,
voudra entendre plus de ce compositeur (C.P.E. Bach).

DIAPASON

Faut-il dire encore la vivacité, l’éloquence, la réactivité, le perfectionnisme
que Frisch, Valetti et leur bande ont mis aux concertos, aux Suites, aux
Brandebourgeois ? Faut-il rappeler qu’aucun ensemble français n’avait
pris une telle place dans la discographie de Bach ?

CLASSICA

Étourdissant, insolent, virtuose mais aussi riche de
couleurs et de nuances. Soliste et orchestre sont grisants
de bout en bout. Qui dit mieux?

EL PAIS

Café Zimmermann joue avec une fraicheur et une insolence incroyables (…). Leur musique nous vient sans détour, désinhibée. Ils swingent !

LE MONDE

Ambiance de ‘boeuf ’ baroque, avec tempos ultrarapides, articulations nettes et couleurs tranchantes.

 

EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

THE WILL TO DEVELOP ACTIONS FOR ALL AUDIENCES

Café Zimmermann promotes 18th century music to a wider audience, through inventive awareness-raising actions. Transmission is at the heart of the musicians' approach, some of whom teach in European conservatories.

 

A cultural and educational action project is being developed, particularly in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. Transmit and share around early music: Café Zimmermann is committed to the development of this awareness project.

 

In schools :

Baroque courses are workshops for school audiences. Organized in partnership with the Grand Théâtre de Provence, they aim to educate young audiences about Baroque aesthetics and music.
 

In hospitals :

Our musicians play in retirement homes, care centers, hospitals, create with patients, medical and administrative teams musical parentheses in order to bring to these audiences a little escape in a difficult daily life.
