The Elements

Les Délices caps off their 10th Anniversary season with ground-breaking music depicting the chaos of creation and the elements of water, fire, earth, and air. Beginning with Les Délices’ new arrangement of Jean-Féry Rebel’s remarkable tone poem Les Elemens (1737) and culminating in the world premiere of Theo Chandler’s gestural and coloristic response, The Elements (2019), this dynamic program explores 18th-century ideas about the natural order while expanding the sound palette for period instruments. Evocative musical representations of natural and man-made disasters by Jean-Philippe Rameau complete the program.

Performers include: Kathie Stewart (flute), Debra Nagy (oboe), Julie Andrijeski & Scott Metcalfe (violins), Steuart Pincombe & Jaap ter Linden (viola da gamba), Anna Marsh (bassoon), Mark Edwards (harpsichord).
