October 12, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT$10 – $45
The San Diego Early Music Society invites you to celebrate François Couperin’s 350th birthday! And there is no more perfect celebration than a performance by the wonderful Les Talens Lyriques under the direction of renowned harpsichordist Christophe Rousset. A musical portrait of one of the great poets of French music, this program will reveal Couperin’s wide emotive range and will include both a ‘Concert royal’ for the Sun King as well as his ‘Leçons de ténèbres pour le mercredi saint’, a rarely performed masterpiece for two sopranos. Come and revel in the first adventure of our season.
