The Glory of the Baroque

St. Cecilia Music Center

RAMEAU Suite from Les Boréades
J.S. BACH Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
MARAIS Chaconne from Semele
HANDEL Music for the Royal Fireworks

Julian Wachner Conductor

This is the glory of the Baroque. The glory of Bach, of Handel, of Rameau and Marais. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti and Handel’s “Royal Fireworks Music” have endured for three centuries. The music of Rameau is just as, just as captivating. The legend of Marin Marais, as told in the film “Tous les Matins du Monde,” is enchanting, and his music even more so.
