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.

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.

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.
