In Greek mythology, the Acheron is the river Orpheus crosses to rescue Eurydice from the Underworld. As its name suggests, Acheron aims to open up a path between two apparently opposed worlds: that of the living and the dead, the past and the present, the ideal and reality.
Founded in 2009 by François Joubert-Caillet, L'Achéron regularly works with artists from different backgrounds: traditional, contemporary, computer-assisted music, dance, theatre, etc. and wishes to strengthen the links between musicians and the public by making music accessible without distorting it, painting with the richest and most sensitive palette all kinds of music, whatever their origins.
L'Achéron has been invited to perform on the most important stages in Europe; on the recording front, L'Achéron has released some twenty CDs with Ricercar-Outhere (J. Schenck, A. Holborne, S. Scheidt, O. Gibbons, J.B. Bach, P.H. Erlebach), all of which have been awarded Diapasons d'Or, Chocs de Classica and Echo Klassik. Latest release: Johann Sebastian Bach's Orgelbüchlein adapted for voice, viola da gamba and bandoneon by Albus Fair Editions.
