music of the renaissance

Denis Raisin Dadre

Biography

After his musical studies – recorder, oboe and musicology – Denis Raisin Dadre formed the ensemble Doulce Mémoire in 1989. His keen interest in history, literature, and the arts in general, as well as music, leads him to devise programmes that are set in a historical context.

After twenty-five years of intense activity, with memorable achievements both in concert and on CD, his love for the Renaissance has never weakened. As Denis Raisin Dadre studies the material found in European libraries, transposes manuscript scores or tries out various instrumental possibilities, he questions preconceived ideas and sometimes even the vocabulary of music – and not only that of the Renaissance, for he often works with stage directors and choreographers on the creation of original types of performance.

He is regularly invited to take part in academies organised for the training of young musicians. Denis Raisin Dadre has taught, for example, at those of Gijon (Spain), Chiquitos (Bolivia), Prague (Czech Republic) and Havana (Cuba). He also teaches in the Department of Early Music at the Conservatoire in Tours, and since 2003 he has been director of the International Academy Le Droict Chemin de Musique for talented young singers.

Denis Raisin Dadre was made a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture in 1999.
