Les Délices (pronounced Lay day-lease) explores the dramatic potential and emotional resonance of long-forgotten music. Founded by Debra Nagy in 2009, Les Délices has established its reputation for unique programs that are “thematically concise, richly expressive, and featuring composers few people have heard of.” The New York Times added, “Concerts and recordings by Les Délices are journeys of discovery.” The ensemble’s debut CD was named one of the "Top Ten Early Music Discoveries of 2009" (NPR's Harmonia). Since Les Délices’ sold-out New York debut at the Frick Collection, touring highlights have included Music Before 1800, San Francisco Early Music Society, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and Columbia University’s Miller Theater. 2018-19 marks their 10th Anniversary season.
