( at The William Andrews Clark Memorial Library)
Chamber Music at the Clark:
“The King’s Mistress”
Isabelle Poulenard, soprano
In 1760, Jean-Philippe Rameau wrote one of the last masterpieces of the French Baroque, Les Paladins, a fairy tale of a comic opera. It is from this whimsical inspiration that today’s celebrated ensemble Les Paladins takes its name. The ensemble explores undeservedly neglected repertoire and masterpieces of baroque musical art from both France and Italy. A mainstay at French festivals, Les Paladins has toured Europe extensively and has recorded a number of its thrilling programs.
Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville
François Rebel and François Francoeur
