La Grande Bande: French Music for Harpsichord (St Paul)
Music from the harpsichord’s golden age
The music written by the French clavecinistes had a profound impact on Europe as French music and culture was disseminated throughout Europe. The music of Johann Sebastian Bach, for example, is infused with French influences from style brisé and the French Ouverture to the courtly dances made indispensable by the Bourbon court.
La Grande Bande’s Music & Artistic Director, Michael Thomas Asmus, will present an intimate concert featuring music by some of the French Baroque’s most influential composers. Join us in celebrating the past five years as we look ahead to the years ahead.
Pre-concert talk begins at approximately 6:45pm.
