La Petite Écurie is an oboe band performing music of the 17th and 18th centuries on historical instruments: two oboes, taille, bassoon and percussion. 

The name of the ensemble refers to the “Grande Écurie”, a musical establishment at the royal court of Louis XIV in Versailles, where most of his wind players were employed.

Miriam, Valerie, Marc, Giovanni and Philipp met at the Festival Musica Antica in Urbino (Italy) in 2018. After playing together with great enthusiasm they decided to form an oboe band together.
