2016/17 CONCERT SEASON

THE 2016–2017 SEASON CONCLUDES APRIL 7/8/9

Hallifax Jeffrey and friends

HALLIFAX & JEFFREY with Marie Dalby Szuts, Josh Lee and John Lenti

Big, Beautiful and French: Music for Several Viols and Continuo

From Louis Couperin to Jean-Baptiste Forqueray and Michel Corette , the French composers we know and love also wrote rarely-heard music for a large ensemble of viols with continuo. This is true chamber music, yet written on a larger scale than the familiar pieces de viole or pieces de violon. At times the texture approaches the orchestral, yet the music retains the intimacy that is the hallmark of the viol and the lute.

The famous 4-part masterpieces Corette’s Le Phenix and Couperin’s La Sultane are cornerstones of this program, which also includes stunning contributions from Forqueray, Marc-Antoine Charpentier, and Jean Philippe Rameau.

HALLIFAX & JEFFREY: Peter Hallifax, Julie Jeffrey, violas da gamba; with guest artists Josh Lee and Marie Dalby Szuts, violas da gamba; John Lenti, theorbo
