From Light to Shadow: Music of François Couperin
Savor the music of François Couperin as we approach the Baroque master’s 350th birthday in this intimate program featuring some of the composer’s most lyrical masterpieces. For more than a quarter century, harpsichord virtuoso Christophe Rousset and his ensemble Les Talens Lyriques have been heralded around the globe for their musical sensitivity and finesse. They make their long-awaited return to the BEMF concert stage in this celebration of François Couperin, with stylish selections from the third Concert royal composed for the court of Louis XIV, excerpts from the hauntingly expressive Leçons de ténèbres written for the Abbey of Longchamp, Suite No. 1 from the Pièces de violes, and selections for solo harpsichord.

Pre-Concert Talk at 3pm.

“Consummate musicality, intelligence and daring.”
—The Washington Post
