This preview has been provided by Raleigh Camerata.

Noted for their “richly varied and engaging” performances by CVNC reviewer John Lambert, the Raleigh Camerata is readily making a name for itself in Early Music in North Carolina and beyond.

Come enjoy a lovely afternoon of music making this Saturday, October 7 at 3:00 pm. The Raleigh Camerata will be presenting a program of French Baroque music highlighting the various stages of compositional style within French composers of the Baroque era. The concert will be preceded by a masterclass on baroque performance for local flutists at 12:15 pm, which is open to the public to audit.

This noteworthy program will include music by some recognizable composers, including Jean-Marie LeClair and Marin Marais (whose music is featured in Tous les Matins du Monde), and some less well-known, including Louis Couperin, who was to become the uncle of the famous Francois Couperin. A trio sonata will be presented by the violinist and composer Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville, a Parisian contemporary with Rameau. Jean-Baptiste Quentin is another violinist-composer featured on this program, whose work will highlight the bass viol, performed by guest artist Gail Ann Schroeder. The ensemble is led by artistic director and founder, Kelly Nivison.
