Corelli & Charpentier


Violin (detail)

Corelli & Charpentier
Master of the Notes
December 16 - 18 & 21 - 23, 2005

The Consort celebrates the holidays in the beautifully decorated Folger Theatre with two Baroque masters. Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) was, in many ways, the most influential composer of his time. Active as a violinist and teacher as well as composer, his six printed collections of instrumental music were admired and emulated all over Europe. Marc-Antoine Charpentier (c.1643-1704), although he never held a prestigious appointment at the French court, was influential in his own right, skillfully blending elements of Italian and French style in his tuneful sacred music and music for the stage.
