Sophie de Bardonnèche and Justin Taylor in a "Rendez-vous Baroque" Concert behind closed doors

About

Live from the Fondation Singer-Polignac, violinist Sophie de Bardonnèche and keyboardist Justin Taylor perform a closed-door concert full of Baroque-era gems, offering a rich selection that shows the vast evolution in styles and instruments during this period. The program will begin with the exquisite melodic lines of François Francoeur’s Sonata No. 2 in E Minor, followed by Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre’s Sonata in D Minor. One of the first women composers of her time, Jacquet de La Guerre's finely wrought music prefigured the unification of the French and Italian styles. Taylor's harpsichord will progressively give way to the fortepiano, and the dynamite duo will round out the evening with Mozart's Six Variations on the plaintive melody “Hélas, j’ai perdu mon amant."
