Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival: harpsichord concert with Olivier Baumont
April 10, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm€15
Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival: harpsichord concert with Olivier Baumont on Saturday 10 April 2021, at 2:30 pm, in Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
Olivier Baumont, one of today’s great harpsichordists, plays the delicate, ornate pieces of the Golden Age of Versailles to perfection. His program straddles two centuries of French music, from Molière’s time to the end of the Ancien Régime. The music dances and sings, with a play of colors and delicate poetry worthy of the paintings of Lebrun and Watteau.
On the programme: Jacques Champion de Chambonnières, Louis Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, François Couperin and Claude Balbastre
