with Jeanne Lamon, director & violin
The legendary violinist and long-time music director of Toronto’s Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Jeanne Lamon, leads sixteen members of Victoria Baroque in a selection of grand Overture Suites and ravishing Concerti Grossi celebrating the first-ever public concert series in Paris. Formed in 1725, Le Concert Spirituel brought music – previously exclusive to the courts – to the public realm, and became a platform to the finest of the French and touring artists. This concert revels in the splendours of the French Suite, Italian Concerto and Classical Symphony, and the contrast and blending of distinct national styles at what became the most acclaimed and imitated concert series in the 18th century Europe.
Music by Telemann, Mondonville, Geminiani, and Haydn.
Now in its Ninth Season, Victoria Baroque presents dynamic, personal and engaging performances of music from the Baroque and Classical periods. Playing on instruments of the 18th century, Victoria Baroque brings audiences closer to the sound world of the period, embracing the dance-driven rhythmic vitality, as well as the lyrical and conversational aspects of baroque music.
