Ships, Clocks, and Stars

Music of Telemann and Other Baroque Masters

April 10 – 12, 2015
Folger Theatre

Folger Consort explores the scientific and the satirical in a celebration of Baroque masterpieces. Virtuoso cantatas, the brilliant and scientific harmonies of François Couperin, and Georg Philipp Telemann's amusing suite based upon Gulliver's Travels are performed with other treasures from an outward-looking age, including Clérambault's fiery, graceful cantata Orphée, a vivid retelling of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. With violins, traverso, viola da gamba, harpsichord, and soprano Yulia Van Doren.
