Featuring Michael Sponseller & Jacob Street, harpsichord
Works by Rameau, Marais, Lully, and more.
Weeks before the orchestra arrives to join in the production of an opera, the repetiteurs create grand operatic gestures and magically gauzy textures at the keyboard in rehearsals with singers and dancers. With the swirling colors of an orchestra under their fingers, virtuoso harpsichordists Michael Sponseller and Jacob Street are featured in this program of orchestral arrangements for two keyboards from operas by Rameau, Marais, Lully, and more.
