LES DELICES presents AGE OF INDULGENCE. 

March 2-4, 2018.  LES DELICES presents AGE OF INDULGENCE.  Hear the unique music from the eve of an aesthetic revolution, daring, experimental works of the French Rococo. These pieces from the 1740s and 1750s don’t conform to our expectations about baroque music, but they’re not quite Classical either. Rather, they mix the humor and wit of early Haydn and Gluck, a little of C.P.E. Bach’s Sturm und Drang, and characteristically lush French harmonies together to create a truly unique sound. We will sample works by François-André Philidor, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and more.  LES DÉLICES: Debra Nagy, baroque oboe; Julie Andrijeski and Adriane Post, baroque violin; Emily Walhout, viola da gamba; Mark Edwards, harpsichord.  FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 8:00PM, First Presbyterian Church, 1140 Cowper Street at Lincoln, Palo Alto; SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 7:30PM, St. Mary Magdalen Church, 2005 Berryman St, Berkeley, SUNDAY, MARCH 4, 4:00PM, First Unitarian Universalist Church, 1187 Franklin St, San Francisco.  510.528.1725 or tickets@sfems.org for details.
