Le Consort

February 22 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 – $25

The Middlebury Performing Arts Series proudly presents Le Consort on their North American debut tour. In a program entitled “A Journey Through Baroque Europe,” Le Consort travels through Italy, England, Germany, and France, illustrating the immense expressive range and creativity of Bach, Vivaldi, Corelli, Purcell, Rameau, and others.

This inquisitive ensemble of violins, cello, and harpsichord passionately seeks, performs, and records exceptional Baroque works. This program features two magnificent settings of “Follia” – the era’s most recognizable melody, and one which still resonates today.

“Audacity, brilliance, and sensual interpretation… Le Consort naturally finds moments of meditation, theater, dance, and jubilant virtuosity…—Diapason d’Or

Learn more about this concert’s music in a free pre-concert lecture by Professor Emeritus of Music Larry Hamberlin, at 6:15 PM in MAC room 125.

Note: Le Consort is grateful to Augusta McKay Lodge for performing with them while violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte is away on paternity leave for the birth of his second child.
