The first concert of our special “Musique des Lumières” summer concert weekend transforms the Albert-Lempp-Saal into an early 20th-century salon during the “beautiful era” (“Belle Époque”) in France when optimism, peace, and prosperity reigned, and scientific and cultural innovation raised human endeavors to new heights. Composers like Debussy, Pierné, Boulanger, and Fauré found ingenious ways to expand the 19th century’s Romantic language and break down the boundaries of musical expression.

Our last season concert transports the audience to mid-18th-century France, when the heady dreams of the Enlightenment mixed with the Sun King’s passionate embrace of theater and pageantry—and particular emphasis on gesture and rhetoric—to shape contemporary art forms like opera, ballet, and instrumental music. Here the Svapinga Consort joins forces with singer and actor João Luís Paixão to combine theatrically interpreted texts with secular cantatas and instrumental works by some of the greatest composers of the French Enlightenment: Rameau, Campra, Clerambault, de Visée, and Chauvon.
