Les Délices: Toutes Suites

  • Lakewood Public Library 15425 Detroit Ave Lakewood, OH, 44107 United States

Presented by Friends of the Lakewood Public Library

Les Délices’ newest program “Toutes Suites” reflects the immediacy and appeal of French baroque chamber music and its relationship to dance with instrumental suites by Jean-Baptiste Lully and Marin Marais plus François Couperin's seldom heard Ritratto dell'Amore (Portrait of Love), each movement of which reflects the various traits of a lover. This quartet of Cleveland-based musicians is led by baroque oboist Debra Nagy, with Julie Andrijeski (baroque violin), David Ellis (viola da gamba), and Simon Martyn-Ellis (theorbo).
