Les Délices

Saturday, April 6, 2013, 8pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

  Cleveland-based French Baroque specialists Les Délices make their Miller debut, recreating the opulent sound world of a 1750s Paris salon. Featuring works that pushed the boundaries of harmony and technical virtuosity, the program revels in the decadence of the era while embracing the Enlightenment values of individuality, originality, and experimentation. Les Délices deftly makes accessible little-known works by Philidor, Dauvergne, Mondonville, and Rameau.
