Program for Oct 15 – Nov 3, 2024

From Naples to London

Join the musicians of Le Consort on a musical journey into the enchanting subtleties of the English baroque as influenced by Italian solar brilliance and virtuosity. Three composers will be under the limelight: Henry Purcell, famous for his operas like Dido & Aeneas and for his inventiveness; Nicolas Matteis, (born in Italy, then emigrated to London) who led an extravagant life and composed in a unique fashion, particularly for the violin; and Miss Philharmonica, a mysterious female composer who published her sonatas in 1715 in London. Let yourself be seduced by English charm with a glimpse of Italian virtuosity, to include some of Vivaldi and Corelli’s biggest hits! This musical journey will delight and surprise by offering plenty of familiar music alongside some genuine discoveries.
