Sonoma Bach, Robert Worth, Artistic Director
“A New Perfection in Music” Midwinter recital featuring Live Oak Baroque Orchestra with Jennifer Paulino, soprano. In the 17th century, musicians from all over Europe flocked to Italy to learn the secrets of the Italian style.  Marc-Antoine Charpentier, the brilliant French composer, traveled to Rome, where he studied with the progenitor of oratorio, Giacomo Carissimi.  Italians such as Giovanni Battista Lulli ( Jean-Baptiste Lully) brought the new style to the French court. This concert offers works from the French circle, including motets and lamentations by both Carissimi and Charpentier; a motet by Antonia Bembo (an Italian in France); a trio sonata by the remarkable Elisabeth Claude Jacquet de la Guerre; a flashy aria by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault; and Francois Couperin’s famous ‘Apothéose de Corelli’, a delightful fantasy in which the two giants, Lully and Arcangelo Corelli, meet in the fictional ‘Parnasse’ to create a new perfection in music’.  Join LOBO, featuring the “bright gleam and supple phrasing” of soprano soloist Jennifer Paulino.
