A Celebration of Rameau, Part I: The Salon
Opera Lafayette begins its commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Jean-Philippe Rameau's death with a program devoted to the great composer's vocal and instrumental chamber works. French harpsichordist Olivier Baumont, professor at the Paris Conservatoire, is featured in a solo suite. He also joins violinist and artistic director Ryan Brown in one of the composer's Pièces de clavecin en concert, and performs transcriptions from Les Indes Galantes with harpsichordist Andrew Appel. A quartet of vocal artists join to perform the lively Canons and Airs published in Rameau's historic Treatise on Harmony.
Performance Timing: Part One - 40 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 30 min.
