Music for the Last Raj: Baroque and Karnatic Music at the Court of Tanjore

September 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

$45

Serfoji II, King of Tanjore from 1798-1832, was a uniquely enthusiastic patron and supporter of the arts and sciences. During his reign, classical South Indian Karnatic music flourished and his court featured regular performances of music brought to India by British colonists, including scores by Handel and Corelli. A lover of both traditions, Serfoji experimented with ensembles of European and Indian instruments playing in hybrid styles, and introduced western instruments to Karnatic performance practice. The Folger Consort’s performances, with musicians from both traditions, will present Karnatic music from Tanjore, speculative ‘cross-overs’, as well as European music from Serfoji’s library.

Guest scholar Indira Viswanathan Peterson hosts an Early Music Seminar in Zoom at 6pm on Wednesday, September 21.
