Serves and Meissen - Redefining Rococo

SERVES & MEISSEN
Redefining Rococo

Too often Rococo art and music is dismissed as frilly and pretty but oh how we miss the effect. The French are sensual and seductive. The Germans are energized and often crazed or grotesque and disturbing in their "decorations."

Four Nations explores the temptations and dangers behind the works of porcelain and music of Leclair, Francoeur, Rameau, Graun and Bach.

The concert takes place in a re-configured barn, now the home of serious collectors of art. The living room had a view over the Taconic range. The hills will be orange, red, and gold in the high season of turning leaves.

With Pascale Beaudin, soprano, Charles Brink, flute Olivier Brault & Edson Shied, violin Kyle Miller, viola, Loretta O’Sullivan, cello, Josh Lee, viola da gamba.

REDEFINING ROCOCCO

The Four Nations Ensemble presents a program of music celebrating the extraordinary gift of more than 1,350 works of art from the collection of financier J. Pierpont Morgan to the Wadsworth Atheneum 100 years ago.

Planned in conjunction with Morgan: Mind of the Collector, the repertoire will compliment the fanciful decorative arts objects in the exhibition through a program that highlights the seductive, and even subversive, nature of the arts and music in 18th century European courtly culture.

Included will be intricate works by Leclair, Telemann and other period composers.

With Pascale Beaudin, soprano, Charles Brink, flute Olivier Brault & Edson Shied, violin Kyle Miller, viola, Loretta O’Sullivan, cello, Josh Lee, viola da gamba, Andrew Appel, harpsichord.


Four Nations concerts and programs are possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
