Chinoiserie: Baroque Musical Treasures from Beijing & Versailles

A rare opportunity to hear Baroque music presented in an entirely adventurous and beautiful context; European music of the 18th century intermingled with compositions brought back  by musicians and missionaries who visited China’s Forbidden City. The decorative style called chinoiserie was all the rage in Paris as it captured the imagination of painters, furniture makers, architects and composers. Baroque violinist, Krista Feeney will be joined by members of Ars Antiqua in an exotic program which brings together the haunting ancient Chinese melodies of Beijing and Rococo masterpieces heard at Versailles. Mark Kramer, Viola da gamba; Cheryl Ann Fulton, Baroque Triple Harp; Tomoko Sugawara, Kugo; Bethanne Walker, Baroque Flute; Dongsok Shin, Harpsichord.
