The Birds and Bees: Reflections of Nature in Baroque Music

Le Triomphe de l’amour,** New Jersey’s chamber music ensemble performing music of the Baroque on period instruments, will present a concert on Saturday, February 28 at the Unitarian Church of Princeton. The concert, titled “The Birds and the Bees: Reflections of Nature in Baroque Music” features 17th- and 18th-century music inspired by the natural world. Guest artist Elissa Wagman, baroque violin, joins members of the ensemble Laura Heimes, soprano, John Burkhalter, recorder, Donna Fournier, viola da gamba, and Janet Palumbo, harpsichord. John Burkhalter will present a pre-concert talk—“The Call of the Wild, or Enduring Lines”—at 7:30 pm; the concert begins at 8:00 pm.

Soprano Laura Heimes will be featured in two very different cantatas. 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.
