Info for Under der Linden

Like the Occitan troubadours and the trouvères of northern France, the Minnesänger celebrated courtly love and gave medieval German its letters of nobility. These "singers of love" — Minne is the old German word for love — thus perpetuated a poetic and musical tradition that had begun nearly two centuries earlier in Occitania. The Minnesänger, generally of noble and knightly blood, gradually emancipated themselves from their French models and developed their own styles and forms during the 13th century.

Ensemble Céladon
Paulin Bündgen, musical direction

The Céladon ensemble
Taking its name from the hero of Honoré d’Urfé’s Astrée, the Céladon ensemble explores the early music repertoire with charm and fantasy, striving to reinvent the form of its concerts at each appearance. Led by countertenor Paulin Bündgen, Céladon seeks to avoid the beaten tracks and enjoys surveying the repertoire linked with the countertenor timbre, between mediaeval, renaissance and baroque music. The ensemble is a regular guest of festivals and concert seasons, recognised for the quality of its interpretations and profoundly human relations with the audience.

The Céladon ensemble has made six recordings : Soledad tenguo de ti, music of the Portuguese Renaissance (Arion, 2006), Maurizio Cazzati’s Absalone ed altre cantate (Arion, 2007), John Coprario’s Funeral Teares (Zig-Zag Territoires, 2009), and Deo Gratias Anglia (Aeon, 2012), Nuits Occitanes (Ricercar, 2014), The love songs of Jehan de Lescurel (Ricercar, 2016). The year 2016 has been the occasion of the creation of No Time in Eternity, a collaboration of the Ensemble with the famous british composer, Michael Nyman.

Paulin Bündgen
Countertenor Paulin Bündgen sings in France and in Europe, with the ensembles Doulce Mémoire, Akadêmia, Clématis, le Concert de l'Hostel-Dieu, Vox Luminis, Elyma, le Concert Spirituel, les Traversées Baroques... He founded his own group in 1999, l'ensemble Céladon, whom with he regularly sings in France and abroad.

In opera, Paulin Bündgen has sung the parts of Pastore in Monteverdi's Orfeo, Mercurio in Landi's La Morte d'Orfeo, Cirilla in Cavalli's Gli Amori di Dafne e Appollo, Endimione in Cavalli's la Calisto, Ottone in l’Incoronazione di Poppea by Monteverdi (in the prestigious Opera Houses of Versailles, le Châtelet, la Cité de la Musique, Royal Opera House in Namur, Teatro Arriaga in Bilbao, London's English National Opera...). He has sang under the direction of conductors Gabriel Garrido, Paul Agnew, Jean Tubéry, Jérôme Corréas, Leonardo Garcia-Alarcón, Françoise Lasserre, Hervé Niquet...

His curiosity drove him to sing in Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's dance-show Mea Culpa, with Turkish musician Kudsi Erguner or beside folk singer Kyrie Kristmanson. He is also very keen on contemporary music and has performed works (including first performances) by Jacopo Baboni-Schilingi, Pierre-Adrien Charpy, Régis Campo, Pierre Bartholomée... He worked in close collaboration with the composer Jean-Philippe Goude and recorded the album Aux Solitudes with him. He also is the author of the album of electronic music Étrange Septembre, published in 2007.

The world famous composer Michael Nyman wrote No Time in Eternity for him and l'ensemble Céladon in 2016.

He recorded more than thirty CDs, covering a wide repertoire going from medieval songs to contemporary music.
