French Cantatas and Suites

In the Folger Elizabethan Theater

April 8-10, 2011


Sophisticated gentlemen and ladies of baroque France were fond of pastoral conceits. Countless late 17th- and early

18th-century songs are rhapsodic about ever balmy breezes and the warmth of mythic summers. Celebrating the temperate season, the Folger Consort performs elegant and virtuosic instrumental music and witty and amorous cantatas by Marais, Charpentier, and others.
