San Francisco Early Music Society - Les Délices

  • First Presbyterian Church, Palo Alto (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Les Délices performs music from their newest CD Age of Indulgence for the San Francisco Early Music Society.

Age of Indulgence presents daring, experimental works from the French Rococo – music from the eve of an aesthetic revolution. These works from the 1740s and 1750s don’t conform to our expectations about Baroque music, but they’re not quite Classical either. Rather, they mix the humor and wit of early Haydn and Gluck, a little of CPE Bach’s sturm und drang, and characteristically lush French harmonies together to create a truly unique sound. Works by François-André Philidor, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and more.

Musical dynasties were numerous during the Baroque era. In France, the dynasty founded by Danican-Philidor, himself the descendant of a family that originated in Scotland, lasted more than 150 years. Most of its members played wind instruments for various royal ensembles, several contributed to improvements in flute- and oboe-making, and some were remarkable composers.

Faculty - Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute

June 17 – 30, 2018: A Celebration of Couperin and Charpentier

The Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute (BPI), the premiere summer workshop focusing on baroque instruments and voice, will mark its 47th year of preparing musicians to perform some of the great works on period instruments. Learn from faculty and resident artists, and participate in master classes, ensembles, and student concerts to practice baroque techniques and gain a greater appreciation of this unique musical genre.

BPI is open to musicians of any level of experience on baroque instruments or voice. You’ll be exposed to expert coaching, master classes, and opportunities to collaborate and perform with other musicians. The session concludes with a student concert of music learned during the institute. Additionally, the Conservatory of Music has a large collection of instruments available to be used by participants.

The internationally renowned faculty led by Artistic Director, Kenneth Slowik, and the Oberlin Baroque Ensemble—Mark Edwards, Michael Lynn, Marilyn McDonald, Catharina Meints —will again host daily master classes and ensemble coaching.

Faculty and student concerts promise to offer memorable listening and music-making experiences, lectures, and informal open discussions to stimulate the intellect. The ever-popular baroque dance classes provide excellent physical exercise as well as a kinetic appreciation for the rhythms that underlie the music of the baroque era.

Les Boréades: La flûte italienne

  • Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur, Montreal (map)

Francis Colpron will play Italian works from the 17th and 18th centuries for this recital. Instrumental virtuosity, which became exuberant in the Baroque era, was never gratuitous but rather served to express emotion. Such virtuosity developed at the dawn of the 17th century, first among violinists, but soon spread to highlight the distinctive characteristics of wind instruments. In this concert, Francis Colpron will play both recorder and traverso, accompanied by Mélisande Corriveau on cello and Mark Edwards on harpsichord.

Les Boréades: Nicandro e Fileno

FOR THIS OCCASION THE ENSEMBLE WILL COMPRISE
SIX SINGERS, TWO ACTORS, AND TEN INSTRUMENTALISTS

Nicandro and Fileno, both stricken in years and seeking a last chance at happiness, propose that each marries the other’s daughter; that Nicandro’s daughter Filli marry Fileno, and Fileno’s daughter Clori marry Nicandro. The girls, however, make several excuses to refuse their fathers’ wishes, for both are in love with Lidio, a fickle and frivolous lover who chases after all the shepherdesses. Eurillo, on the other hand, is dying of love for Filli. She rejects his advances, preferring Lidio. Eurillo swears revenge against the man who has robbed him of his love. After the usual mix-ups, Nicandro and Fileno finally realize that their plan was just a fantasy and they will have to settle for the lot imposed by advanced age.
