Armonico: The French Connection

5th October 2023 7:30 pm

 

ARMONICO CONSORT

DIRECTOR | CHRISTOPHER MONKS

Join Armonico Consort for a programme which embraces the French passion for pretty much everything from, food to literature and music, and from art to, well, national strikes. Nobody does it better than the French!

Alongside the fabulously triumphant and arresting Te Deum by Charpentier (a work whose main theme is still used by the Eurovision Song Contest) are his lesser-known compositions, paired with those of Lully and Delalande. The work of these fine composers epitomises the brilliance of the French baroque in pretty much every form. A further highlight of this programme is a short work by Rameau, which many hail to be the most beautiful piece of music ever written.

This programme is generously supported by Mr Nigel May
