Les Goûts-réünis: Music of Couperin, Montéclair, Gervais & Renier
Les Bostonades kicks off its 20182019 season on Friday, October 19 featuring the return of the internationally acclaimed tenor Zachary Wilder. The concert, "Les Goûts réunis", whose title is taken from a collection of chamber works by François Couperin (16681733), celebrates music of the reunited tastes of French and Italian styles from the first half of the 18th century.
Featured pieces include cantata Le Retour de la Paix (The Return of Peace) by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair (16671737), and two rarely performed cantatas, Télémaque (Telemachus) by Charles-Hubert Gervais (16711744) and LIndifférence punie (The Punishing Indifference) by Nicolas Renier (d. c.1731).
The program will also contain Couperins solo harpsichord works, La Superbe ou La Forqueray (The Superb One, or Forqueray) and Les Petits Moulins à Vent (The Little Windmills) from his seventeenth ordre, and his L'Apothéose de Lully (The Apotheosis of Lully) for various instruments and continuo, to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the birth of the composer.
