Leading period-instrument ensemble Les Arts Florissants launches the Proms Chamber Music series with the first of its two Proms appearances marking 250 years since the death of Jean-Philippe Rameau. France’s leading Baroque composer, whom some have called the ‘French Bach’, proved more progressive than Lully, more virtuosic than Couperin.
This lunchtime Les Arts Florissants appears on an intimate scale, performing Rameau’s only chamber music – the lively and virtuosic Pièces de clavecin en concerts. With movements named after people, places and moods, each is a miniature character study, an evocative musical portrait.
There will be no interval
