The Isle of Delos

Seductive Baroque cantatas and sonatas by France’s foremost woman composer

Saturday, February 4, 7:30 PM
Calvary Episcopal Church, Shadyside

Chatham Baroque welcomes back the radiant soprano, Sherezade Panthaki, in a program featuring the sublime music of Èlisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, a keyboard prodigy in the court at Versailles turned composer extraordinaire. Her many compositions include several cantatas for chamber ensemble and solo voice, including the bucolic cantata “Isle of Delos,” which sets a sensual, Arcadian scene, that evokes pastoral birdsong, shepherds, musettes, and dance. The program will also include excerpts from her tragédie Céphale et Procris, as well as François Couperin’s instrumental suite L’Imperiale from his collection Les Nations.
