Concertos Comiques

May 8, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Comedy, Popular tunes, and Instrumental Virtuosity
Works for oboe, recorder, and strings by Corrette, Boismortier, and more.

Joseph Bodin de Boismortier and Michel Corrette were gifted musicians and shrewd businessmen with a flair for both comedy and drama. Each had a knack for responding to contemporary trends and competing fashions while developing unique personal styles that integrated the vogue for Italian music together with popular songs and so-called “pastoral chic.” We feature Corrette’s fun and fabulous Concertos comiques alongside popular tunes, Boismortier’s chamber music, and readings from Paris’s Opéra Comique.

Pre-concert lecture at 3pm.
