Le Concert de l’Hostel Dieu is known for preserving and enhancing Lyon’s baroque heritage. The ensemble’s 2021-2022 concert season will include a new project: the re-creation of the oratorio Il Paradiso perduto, a masterpiece attributed to the forgotten genius Luigi da Mancia, and of which the manuscript is preserved in the Lyon public library.
Le Concert de l’Hostel Dieu has started a fascinating musicological enquiry, in order to solve the many mysteries surrounding this manuscript and its alleged composer. The steps of the exciting adventure towards unearthing and bringing (back) to life a manuscript, of which the extraordinarily varied orchestration offers music of a surprising splendour, will include musicological research, transcription and edition, concerts and recordings.
