“A bona fide SEASON HIGHLIGHT.” -The New York Times
Pioneers in the renaissance of early music, unearthing treasures unheard for hundreds of years and presenting them in acclaimed performances and recordings on original instruments, Les Arts Florissants under the leadership of conductor/harpsichordist William Christie are among today’s foremost champions of Baroque vocal and instrumental works. Touring the world and creating a significant discography, the ensemble collaborates with distinguished performers and theater directors.
This program, Serious Airs and Drinking Songs, features works by 17th-century French composers Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Etienne Moulinié, Sébastien Le Camus and Michel Lambert.
Classical music performances are made possible by The William R. Kenan,Jr. Charitable Trust. We thank theTrustees for their visionary generosity.
