Lush Harmonies. Baroque Gestures. Classical Forms.
Works for oboe and strings by Rameau, Philidor, and more.
Les Délices continues its exploration of daring, experimental works from the French Rococo. Quartets from François-André Philidor’s Art of Modulation and other works for the salon mix lush French harmonies with Haydn-esque humor and wit and a little of CPE Bach’s characteristic sturm und drang to create a truly unique sound. The result is a fusion of baroque gestures and classical forms that combine with harmonic and technical virtuosity to yield expressive extremes. Works by Philidor, Rameau, and more.
