Originally founded in 1783, La Concert de la Loge was resurrected in 2015 by violinist Julien Chauvin. Once considered one of the best orchestras in Europe, it is most famous for commissioning Haydn's 'Paris' Symphonies. Their concerts were attended by royalty, most famously Queen Marie Antoinette, for whom Haydn's Symphony No.85 ''The Queen'' is nicknamed. Henri–Joseph Rigel was a violist in La Concert de la Loge. Here we rediscover his Symphony Op.12 No.4. As was traditional at the time, this program also features vocal music. French Soprano Sandrine Piau is soloist in excerpts from Sarti's Didone abbandonata and J.C. Bach's Endemione.
