• Handel’s “Oh had I Jubal’s Lyre” from Joshua and his Air from the Water Music
• Trio sonatas by William Boyce and Dr. Thomas Arne
• Arcangelo Corelli’s Violin Sonata op. 5, no. 1
• Songs from 18th century popular musical theater

Le Triomphe de l'amour is a chamber music ensemble performing Baroque music on original instruments.  This year, the ensemble celebrates its 18th season.  This is the first concert in the 2008-2009 season.  Other concerts this season will be on February 28 and April 18, 2009.

Triomphe’s concerts are more than just music:  each is an exploration of music and cultural history, and a window into life in the 18th century.  Illustrated pre-concert talks, focused program themes, and insightful program notes help to lead the audience to a deeper understanding of the music and its historical and cultural context.

Programs made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Dept. of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and by funds from the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission.   Programs subject to change.
