Ballets and Brawls



French Music of Court and Countryside
In the Folger Elizabethan Theater
March 19-21, 2010


For a delightful springtime concert, the Consort performs a program of French romance and wit circa 1610. France was also influenced by the great revolution in musical taste that occurred at the beginning of the 17th century, but French music developed in very different directions than Italian Baroque. In court entertainments, dance reigned supreme, and our program includes charming dances, complemented by songs for voice and lute, in both sophisticated and rustic styles, including witty, amorous dialogues for baritone and soprano.
