Special guest artist, baroque flutist Laura Ronai of Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, returns for this special anniversary concert celebrating the first 20 seasons of concerts by Le Triomphe de l’amour.  Ms. Ronai is featured on the second of Le Triomphe de l’amour’s CD releases—the world premiere recording of Boismortier’s Trio Sonatas op. 41.  Recorded in the Princeton University Chapel in 1999 and released in Brasil on the A Casa Discos label in 2004, this recording is available on iTunes and Amazon, along with the ensemble’s first CD of Telemann’s Trio Sonatas “dans le gout Italien.”

For 20 years, Le Triomphe de l’amour has brought the musical past to life, focusing especially on 18th century music from France and from England & Scotland.  Both threads will be woven together in this retrospective concert of favorites from each repertoire.

John Burkhalter will give a brief pre-concert talk at 7:30 pm on “The French Connection—Music from France and Scotland in the 18th century.”  In his talk, Mr. Burkhalter will discuss the political and cultural alliances that existed between Franch and Scotland in the 18th century.

Included on the program:
• Telemann’s Paris Quartet in E minor
• Bernier’s Le Triomphe de l’amour—a secular cantata celebrating Cupid’s power!
• Boismortier’s Trio Sonata, op. 41, no. 3 in G major (recorded by Le Triomphe de l’amour)
• Selections from Haydn’s Scottish songs
• Oswald’s Dust Cart Cantata—an 18th century parody!

Tickets available at the door: $20 General Admission; $18 Seniors; $5 Students

Friday, October 31, 2014, 8PM: De Profundis: In the Shadow of Death.  Funeral music by German baroque composer Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684)

“Life itself is but the shadow of death, and souls departed but the shadows of the living.” - Sir Thomas Browne

Trinity Church, Princeton 33 Mercer Street Princeton, NJ 08540

Johann Rosenmüller has come to the forefront of attention in recent years as a composer of remarkable musical depth and talent. His ability to create both intense vocal drama is equaled by his expressive string writing. In his larger monumental settings of psalms he combines the spatial sensitivity of Monteverdi with the virtuosic string ensemble music of the second half of the 17th century, foreshadowing the sacred music of Bach. His smaller cantatas are gems of text painting and expressive string writing. In the 21st century, audiences are finally beginning to discover the mid-baroque repertoire and the masterpieces of this exceptionally superb composer.
