La Timide et L'Indiscrette
Saturday, April 27, 7pm
A study of the dark serenity of French harpsichord music of the 18th century, a time when French culture was supreme, and the clavecinistes set the musical taste for all of Europe. Works by D’Anglebert, Rameau, Couperin Le Grand, and Duphly, demonstrate the transition from the effortless control of the dance suite to the ecstatic freedom of the chaconne and the passacaglia. This recital is a fundraiser for St. Alban's pipe organ fund.
