Through his vision William Christie is said to have helped to find a future course for opera by casting a bright, exploratory light on its past. Through his influence and tireless exploration he has contributed significantly to the popularity today of the historically informed interpretation of early music on period instruments; moreover, he is an indisputable authority on music of the 17th and 18th centuries. It will soon be exactly forty years since a major turning point occurred in his career, when he founded the ensemble Les Arts Florissants, which he directs to this day and which has played a pioneering role in the revival of French Baroque music.
