Special guests including
On the 250th anniversary of the death of Rameau and murder of Leclair, experience the uniquely beautiful and sensuous music of the Court of Louis XIV and XV as well as music from the first public concerts in Paris in the 18th century with one of America's most imaginative and compelling early music ensembles. The melancholy and noble sentiment of Francois Couperin and the harrowing drama of Louis Nicolas Clerambault's cantata Medea, will modulate your sense of music at court from images of a pretty minuet into something by turns grand, touching, and exciting!
In 1986, the Four Nations Ensemble has established itself as one of New York’s most imaginative early-music ensembles and is recognized for its adventuresome programming with invitations to play an active role in planning chamber music offerings at major festivals around the country.
