VIRTUAL: Les Délices in a Program of French Music and Dance in the Age of Louis XIV

« All Events

January 9 @ 8:00 pm

$20
Music in the Somerset Hills is proud to present the Cleveland-based ensemble Les Délices (The Delights) in a program of baroque music, performed on original instruments of the period.
This concert brings to our repertoire an enchanting form of music we have not previously featured – music that was composed for the Royal Court of France in the century before the Revolution, during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. It was a time when French music went its own way, led by its two greatest composers, Lully and Rameau, and inspired by the glory (“la Gloire”) of the Sun King, who was himself an accomplished dancer – which is why much of the music was written for dance.
Viewers at home will have the option to purchase a specially created wine and cheese board from Gary’s to complement the music of the evening. ***If you are buying bundles for multiple events, please remember to put the corresponding number of bundles in your cart.
