French-Canadian 15-piece chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy has been performing baroque and classical music all over North America and beyond for a magnifique 38 years. Led by conductor Jonathan Cohen, the ensemble has released an impressive 36 recordings, racking up several Juno Awards—the Canadian Grammys—along the way. In recent years, le Québécois musiciens have performed master works of Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart along with pieces from living legends like Philip Glass. Les Violons du Roy prides itself on showcasing guest soloists at its concerts and the ensemble’s Purdue engagement will be no different. Pianist Inon Barnatan has wowed audiences from Los Angeles to London, just as he did at Purdue in 2016. The New York Times dubbed him “one of the most admired pianists of his generation.”
