Sébastien Daucé
Artistic director

Organist and harpsichordist, Sébastien Daucé is driven by the desire to bring to life a rich and still little-known repertoire: that of 17th century French music. In 2009, he founded the Correspondances ensemble, which he directs from the harpsichord or organ, and with which he travels throughout France and the world and frequently records for the radio. His exploration of a little-played, often unpublished repertoire, resulted, with the support of the Harmonia Mundi label, a pioneer in many respects in the baroque repertoire, in a discography of seventeen recordings noted by critics. Alongside his activities as a musician, Sébastien Daucé collaborates with the best specialists of the 17th century, regularly publishing articles and participating in important performance-practice projects. Passionate about the question of musical style, he edits the music that constitutes the ensemble's repertoire, going so far as to offer complete recompositions when necessary (Le Ballet Royal de la Nuit). Since 2023, he has been the artistic director of the Promenades Musicales du Pays d’Auge.
