Presented by Academy of Early Music.

An essential element in the ballroom and on the theater stage, music for dancing is at the heart of French baroque style. Les Délices’ program includes Rebel’s brilliant Caractères de la Danse (a fantasia choreographed for a single virtuoso dancer), a scene from Rameau’s Pigmalion, solo suites for oboe and viol by Philidor and Marais, and the earthy, rollicking dances of Boismortier’s Ballets de Village.  Plus, the Muse of dance herself inspires Rebel’s own trio, La Terpsichore.

Rameau: Chaconne from Hippolyte et Aricie (arr. Les Délices)
