In its depth and spirituality, St Matthew Passion is a work that speaks to the whole of humanity.

Concerts aux Iles du Bic - Fiorè

On fête le retour de la violoncelliste Elinor Frey qui, en compagnie de l’extraordinaire soprano Suzie LeBlanc, propose un concert baroque centré sur un corpus de musique pour violoncelle découvert dans un petit centre d’archives, en Italie. Ce manuscrit renferme des œuvres parmi les toutes premières à avoir été écrites pour le violoncelle comme instrument soliste, dont les sonates brillantes et lyriques du milanais Angelo Maria Fiorè, ainsi que des airs anonymes mariant les lignes expressives du violoncelle à des textes empreints de​​ nostalgie, de tourments et d’amour idéalisé.

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.

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.
