About

Accentus, Laurence Equilbey, and Naïve: a story that goes back a long way, a story of fidelity and diversity. Fidelity in our artistic companionship, since Accentus was one of the first ensembles to join Naïve when the label was created in 1999. Diversity, because our shared artistic trajectory has been shaped by a wide variety of repertoires and projects.

First of all there was Pascal Dusapin’s Requiem[s], an ongoing success that has reached far beyond the contemporary sphere; then a magnificent programme of a cappella Poulenc; then the bombshell of 'Transcriptions', which is both the group’s and the label’s bestseller to date.

After an excursion into Schoenberg with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the year 2003 was marked by Brahms’ German Requiem in its version with piano. In 2005 came the first recording with orchestra under the direction of Laurence Equilbey (Haydn’s Seven Last Words).

Since then, our projects have embraced music of the 20th and 21st centuries, key repertoire works (Fauré Requiem), rarely recorded monuments like Richard Strauss’s masterpieces for a cappella choir, a DVD of the 'Transcriptions', a concert of Christmas music for CD and television in 2009, Rachmaninov, Dvorák, Mendelssohn…

'Happy Birthday' to all the artists who participated in the adventure of the first 20 years and here's to the next 20.
