Research Graupner / Fondation La Borie en Limousin

Raphaël Pichon and Pygmalion took part in a project about the composer Christoph Graupner (1683-1760), that aimed to let the public discover his great vocal work which was unknown in France until then.

The Fondation La Borie-en-Limousin and the Fondation Royaumont joined and supported this goal.

This research conducted by Michel Uhlmann and the research laboratory of the Fondation La Borie consisted in probing into Graupner's entirely handwritten vocal work consisting of 1442 works. 

This research led to a set of concerts and to the publication of new cantatas and texts about Grapuner (studies and translations).
