Les Cris de Paris, formed by Geoffroy Jourdain in 1999, perform a vocal and instrumental repertoire spanning from the 16th century to nowadays.
They are fully involved, just as Les Siècles, in the rediscovering of unknown pieces.
The soloists of Les Siècles and Les Cris de Paris give three programmes at the Cervantino festival, extending from the Baroque to nowadays music.
Haendel ‘s Israël in Egypt  is based on excerpts from the Old Testament, mainly from the Exodus and the Book of Psalms.
The soldier’s tale from Igor Stravinsky tells the adventures of José, a soldier, who encounters the Devil and exchanges his violin, that is to say, his soul for a book predicting the future.
!Scandale! is a musical and literary voyage throughout several masterpieces universally regarded as aesthetic references.
