Extracts from Israëlis Brünnlein
Prior to founding the La Tempête (‘Tempest’ in French) music group, Simon-Pierre Bestion had been formally trained as an organist and harpsichordist. In 2007, his love towards early music led him to creating the Europa Barocca chamber music group together with viola da gamba player Julie Dessaint. Next came the Luce del Canto Choir vocal group, which Bestion formed out of semiprofessional singers. Having matured as performers, the two groups merged to form La Tempête in 2015.
La Tempête’s repertoire encompasses various eras and aesthetics; however, the group draws its biggest inspiration from early and traditional music along with pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries.
La Tempête has been sponsored by Mécénat Musical Sociéte Générale since 2015 and Caisse des Dépôts since 2019.
It also has the support of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the Department of Corrèze, the town of Brive-la-Gaillarde and the OARA.
The company is in residency at the Singer-Polignac Foundation and has the support of Musique Nouvelle en Liberté.
La Tempête is a member of the Federation of Specialist Vocal and Instrumental Ensembles (FEVIS) and of the PROFEDIM Union.
