Pièces de clavecin en concerts
The Pièces de clavecin en concerts (1741) by Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) are not only masterpieces of the Baroque chamber repertoires, but also among the first works to explore the idea of solo harpsichord being accompanied by strings or wind instruments. The five “Concerts” are made up of dramatic movements, dances and slow movements; many of them were later reworked by Rameau for his highly successful operas.
Vivaldi: Motets and Instrumental Music
An all-Vivaldi program featuring his virtuosic and lyrical solo motets for soprano, In furore iustissimae irae, RV626, and Nulla in mundo pax sincere, RV630, as well as his instrumental music, such as people’s favorite La Folia, RV63. With Teresa Wakim, Soprano.
