ST. MARK’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH PARISH HALL
2300 Bancroft Way, Berkeley

Tickets available at the door. Price: $15.

Repertoire: G. P. Telemann, selections from the “Paris” Quartets of 1730 and 1737; Joseph Boismortier, selections from Sonatas for flute and violin, opus 51; F. Couperin, Le Rossignol; J. Rameau, Les Cyclopes.  Our concert Paris, 1730 is organized around the “almost French” Quartets of Georg Telemann written specifically for the leading French performers of the era. These sturdy masterpieces for flute, violin, viola da gamba, and continuo, performed by some of the leading instrumentalists of the world of early music, are joined in concert with some rarely heard exotics by the astonishingly prolific Joseph Boismortier, as well as the ne plus ultra French creators Jean Rameau and François Couperin.

LES DISTRAITS: Stephen Schultz, baroque flute; Elizabeth Blumenstock, baroque violin; Roy Wheldon, viola da gamba; David Morris, baroque cello; Katherine Heater, harpsichord.
