Paris au Printemps
April 1, 2017 8:00 PM
St. Martin's Episcopal Church
1510 East Seventh Street, Charlotte, NC 28204 

18th-century Paris was the source of things new from fashion to music. Clerambault developed the genre of the French cantata of which he was the uncontested master. In his cantata L'Ile de Delos the goddess of harmony is able to combine wisdom with pleasure. Other works include rarely heard Clerambault and Jacquet de la Guerre trios. Musically, Paris was the place to be.
