Pallade Musica: A Quartet in Paris

presented by the Da Camera Society, Chamber Music in Historic Sites
Saturday, May 23, 2015 - 8:00pm

Beneath the “rosy glow of a majestically vaulted rotunda,” four of Montreal’s most prominent Early Music performers make their Chamber Music in Historic Sites debut with their customary “elegant verve, fluency, style and grace” (Express Milwaukee). Their program celebrates the storied 1737 premiere of Georg Philipp Telemann’s famous “Paris” Quartets, when many of the performers were also accomplished composers – Lully, Blavet and Forqueray. Telemann rubbed shoulders that night with the most promising musicians in Paris, and their works join his in this program celebrating virtuosity and excitement. “Energy and vigor…technical surety…superb musicianship and just enough showmanship” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

The Il Barocco series is sponsored by Warner & Carol Henry.

This concert and festival are made possible in part by a generous grant from the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
