St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble: Baroque Storytelling: Don Quixote

Sunday, November 24, 2019

2–4 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble opens their season with a concert dedicated to Baroque program music. The program highlights the narrative quality of Baroque composition with works by composers including Antonio Lucio Vivaldi and Jean-Philippe Rameau, and features Georg Philipp Telemann’s overture-suite Burlesque de Quixotte as the centerpiece. Written in seven movements, the overture takes the listener on Don Quixote’s journey, from his dreams of adventure and romance through his chivalrous love for Dulcinea and his battle against the windmill.

Program:

  • Matthew Locke: Curtain Tune, The Tempest
  • Jean-Féry Rebel: Excerpts, Les Elemens (The Elements)
  • Jean-Philippe Rameau: Pièces de Clavecin: Concert No. 4 in B-Flat Major
  • Henrich Ignaz Franz von Biber: Rosary Sonata no. 10, “The Crucifixion”
  • Georg Philipp Telemann: Ouverture, Burlesque de Quixotte
  • François Couperin: Sommeil, Le Parnasse ou L'Apothéose de Corelli
  • Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto for Flute in G Minor, RV 439, “La Notte”

Tickets are $40 ($32 for Members) and are available at oslmusic.org or by calling 212.594.6100, ext. 2.
