|Music from Versailles, featuring Geoffrey Burgess, oboe & Leon Schelhase, harpsichord. Composers at the French court provided music not only for grand ceremony and opera but also private entertainment. Our program features music of a diversity of styles, with duets for oboe and harpsichord as well as harpsichord solos: from the character sketches of François Couperin’s pièces de clavecin, Boismortier’s playful gallantries, the compelling allure of Forqueray’s musical gestures, to the bravura of Jean-Féry Rebel’s virtuosic writing.|
This event will be presented online, with an interview and live chat, and is co-presented with Pegasus Early Music.
