What to expect:
Jean-Féry Rebel: Les Éléments
Georg Friedrich Handel: Watermusic-Suite No. 1 in F major, HWV 348
Christoph Willibald Gluck: Don Juan (Ballet pantomime)
Pure delight in baroque music is guaranteed when Jordi Savall conducts his early music orchestra Le Concert des Nation.
The grand seigneur of sensuous sound builds bridges between nations and styles. His newest endeavor: ballet music from Vienna, Paris and London. When Luigi Boccherini’s sister showed her beautiful legs in Gluck’s Don Juan ballet in 1761, the seducer could not resist the temptation and the audience was excited. 30 years before, the ballerina Marie Sallé delighted audiences in Paris and London, dancing to the music of Rebel and Handel.
The performance lasts 60-70 minutes without an interval.
