Clerambault’s L’amour piqué par une abeille (Love stung by a bee) and The Stocking, by the English composer Stokes, an 18th century parody of pastoral cantatas; Violinist Elissa Wagman will be featured in the Sonata representativa by the 17th century German composer Heinrich Ignaz von BiberJanet Palumbo will perform Rameau’s Harpsichord Suite in E, which includes Le Rappel des oiseaux (The call of the birds) as well as Rameau’s famous Tambourin. John Burkhalter will play selections from The Bird Fancyer’s Delight, a collection of flute and recorder pieces in imitation of the songs of various birds, published in London around 1730. Other works on the program are Le Rossignol en amour (The Nightingale in love) by Francois Couperin and Scottish composer James Oswald’s “The Hawthorn” from his Airs for the Seasons.
