As part of its 15th anniversary season celebration, Concerto da Camera announces the inaugural concert of its new harpsichord in an all-French Baroque concert, to take place on the 4th April 2019 at 8:15pm, at the China Congregational Church Recital Theatre.
Concerto da Camera’s new harpsichord, based on an instrument by Ruckers conserved in Colmar, France, is built by prominent Montreal maker Yves Beaupré, whose instruments are well-liked by institutions and performing organizations across North America and Europe. Its soundboard is painted by Montreal artist Pascale Dupré.
Joined by distinguished Canadian keyboardist and scholar Dr. Sonia Lee, Concerto da Camera will present a splendid programme of vocal and instrumental music by some of the most influential French composers of the 17th and 18th centuries, including Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Charles Dieupart, Antoine Forqueray, Michael Lambert, and François Couperin.
In celebration of the new harpsichord, Concerto da Camera will also premiere a newly commissioned work for period ensemble and reciter by Hong Kong composer Dr. Yau May Kay. French performing artist and pedagogue Matthieu Mottewill recite a 17th-century love poem in this new work, and narrate in the entertaining Baroque programmatic piece, “Apothéose de Lully,” by François Couperin, written in honor of Jean-Baptiste Lully, a master of the French Baroque style who served under Louis XIV, the Sun King.
