Les Surprises Baroques Concert
THE MUSE OF THE COUNTRYSIDE: A RUSTIC DIVERTISSEMENT

Artistic Director: Elizabeth Blumenstock, Baroque Violinist

Guest Artist: Curtis Berak, Hurdy Gurdy

The French aristocracy of the late Baroque era has been characterized as a gang of scheming back-stabbers and Libertines...and connoisseurs of every well-developed fine art.  Their cynical and often appalling proclivities are almost belied by their infatuation with an idealized vision of mythical Arcadia, populated by innocent nymphs and shepherdesses and their swains.

Included in the upper crust embrace of all things pastoral was the HURDY GURDY, the magnificent tuneful, droning instrument that had been a fixture in European peasant life since Medieval times.  

Join well-know guest artist CURTIS BERAK and Les Surprises Baroques for a ramble through this bucolic soundscape, as imagined and realized by such composers as Corette, Marais, and Rameau.
