La salon élégant: Music of the Paris Salon, c. 1650-1750

LA FIOCCO, Bucks County’s new period instrument ensemble, will present a concert of music of French baroque chamber music entitled Le salon élégant:  Music of the Paris Salon, c. 1650-1750.  The program explores the sumptuousness and elegance of music during the age of Louis XIV and Louis XV.  The program will include works by Rameau, Campra, Louis Couperin, Loeillet, Marais, and Clérambault, important composers in the orbit of the court and aristocrats of Versailles. This special concert brings together expert players from four states to recreate the exquisite an subtle music of aristocratic circles in pre-Revolutionary France during the ancien régime.

La Fiocco was founded by Bucks County harpsichordist and recorder player Lewis R. Baratz and is now a 501(c)(3) Commonwealth of Pennsylvania organization.  Rochelle Reed, concert choir conductor and voice professor at Bucks County Community College, will be a featured guest artist and perform cantatas by Campra and Clérambault.  These cantatas are secular works for voice and instruments, and are based on the classical mythological tales of Arion, Leandra, and Hero.  Other artists performing on the program are Rachel Evans, baroque violin; Jill Crawford and Rebecca Stuhr, baroque flute; Lynn Fergusson and Douglas Kelley, viola da gamba; Antonio Arosemena, recorder; Benjamin T. Berman, harpsichord; and Lewis R. Baratz, harpsichord and recorder. Featured instrumental works are Rameau, Pièces de claveçin en concert Nos. 1 and 5, Loeillet Quintet in B minor for two recorders in d (voice flutes), two flutes, and continuo, and Marais, suite for 2 bass viols in D minor.

The concert will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, Solebury, Pennsylvania.  Tickets at the door ($20 general admission, $17 seniors, and $12 students, check or cash).  For more information, please visit www.lafiocco.org.  La Fiocco is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
