CONCERT: Compagnie Baroque Mont-Royal
Nov 24 @ 15:00

Trio Ponte - WestmountMag.caOn Sunday, November 24 at 3 pm in Victoria Hall, 4626 Sherbrooke W, the Compagnie baroque Mont-Royal presents The Elysian Groves: French music of the baroque with Trio Ponté: David Menzies, tenor; Madeleine Owen, theorbo and James Williamson, viola da gamba.

Songs and instrumental pieces from the French baroque. Airs de cour are veritable poems set to music. These musical miniatures, sometimes sad, sometimes sly or funny, are commentaries on love, men and women, nature and society. At the same moment in France, the viola da gamba was taking its place for the first time as a solo instrument, accompanied by the theorbo, its faithful companion from the basso continuo.

Tickets: $20 ($10 for students)
Available at Victoria Hall or online at Eventbrite.ca
