The Ensemble's season begins with Music from Versailles, a program of
chamber music in the obsessively refined French style. The program will
include Marin Marais's brilliant variations on Les Folies d'espagne,
N. Clèrambault's Medèe, and François Couperin's
Les Goûts Rèunis, works which display the French
musicians' dynamic fusion of passion and refinement. Soprano Patrice
Michaels Bedi will be featured soloist.
January 21-22, 1996.
J. S. Bach and G. F. Handel produced some of the Baroque
era's most satisfying masterworks; a program of their music always feels
like coming home. Our selection includes J. S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto
#5, Handel's cantata Mi palpita il cor, and transcriptions of Handel
opera selections recently discovered in a private collection in England by
flautist Anita Miller-Reider. Countertenor Mark Crayton will be soloist.
March 10-11, 1996.
Nymphs of the Rhine. Viola da gamba virtuosa Mary Springfels and
soprano Christine Brandes join Chicago Baroque Ensemble for a recital of
German and French works featuring the luscious sounds of two and three
viols. The program includes Montèclair's Le Trionfe de la
constance, and a sonata from Johann Schenk's Nymphs of the Rhine.
