“Wondrous, elegant…a miracle of musical and dramatic inspiration.”
-The New York Times

“The hottest guitarist in the world…”
-The Sunday Times, London


Taking its name from the celebrated court orchestra of French kings, Les Violons du Roy explores centuries of chamber music repertoire in performances that authentically reflect the period of each work’s composition. Informed by musical history and enlivened by fifteen of the finest musicians you are likely ever to hear, their performances are “scintillating, sexy, electric, elegant…exciting and entertaining” (Classics Today). They’ll be joined here by an extraordinary guitarist who has taken the world by storm, with best-selling recordings and acclaimed performances around the world, from the Royal Albert Hall to the Hollywood Bowl. “Listening… you find yourself wondering where on earth the classical guitar has been lately… it’s as if MILOŠ is shining a brilliant light on the entire heritage of his instrument” (The Telegraph, UK).

Co-presented with Norfolk Academy.
