About this event

Christophe Rousset's supremely elegant ensemble, which has been breathing new life into the rich legacy of the French Baroque for more than 20 years, presents a programme squarely in the Gallic tradition but with influences from across the Alps.

The programme includes a selection from Couperin's colourful Les nations and Rameau's delicately poised Pièces en concerts.

Less familiar may be the eloquent cantata by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, an important musical figure in the period between Lully and Rameau, who counted Couperin's daughters among his pupils.

The story of Lucretia and her suicide is taken up by a young soprano who has been making quite a name for herself since abandoning a career in medicine for the healing balm of music.
