Maestro move: Quebec grabs a Britmain
The Canadian early music ensemble Les Violons du Roy has named Jonathan Cohen to succeed its founder, Bernard Labadie, who has stepped down.
Cohen, 39, associate director of William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants, took over a tour for Labadie two years ago. He is founder-director of Arcangelo and artistic partner of the St Paul Chamber Orchestra. Labadie has welcomed his appointment ‘with great pleasure.’
