* * * Friday, July 27, 2012 at 7:30 PM:
 Jeffrey Cohan (baroque flute)
 Joseph Gascho (harpsichord)
 Gözde Yaşar (viola da gamba)

Dressed as Apollo, the God of the Sun in ballet performances in 1653, guitarist and dancer Louis XIV was hence forth known as the Sun King. His extravagant musical entourage functioned in part as a reflection of the splendor of his court and his absolute rule, but produced transporting works that radiate the genius of members of his Musique de la Chambre and the king's genuine love and talent for music.

The program will include works by some of the king's most celebrated musicians: Jean-Baptiste Lully, Robert de Visée, Michel Lambert, Jacques Hotteterre and Michel de la Barre.

* * * Sunday, July 29 at 7:30 PM:
 Jeffrey Cohan (baroque flute)
 Joseph Gascho (harpsichord)
 Gözde Yaşar (baroque cello)

This celebration of the 300th anniversary of flutist king Frederick the Great's birth will include Johann Sebastian Bach's Musical Offering trio sonata, written shortly after his visit to Frederick's court in 1747 and performed here with obbligato harpsichord, and music by Bach's son and Frederick's court keyboardist Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, the king's flute teacher Johann Joachim Quantz, and King Friedrich II of Prussia himself.
