Ensemble Chaconne (Peter H. Bloom, baroque flute; Carol Lewis, viola da gamba; and Olav Chris Henriksen, baroque lute, baroque guitar, and theorbo) will return to the Jean C. Wilson Series with a concert called Le Grand Siècle: Music of the French Court 1650-1750. The concert features gems by the incomparable masters Marin Marais, François Couperin and Jean Marie Leclair, as well as rarely-heard treasures by Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, Anne Bocquet, and other composers from the courts of Louis XIV and Louis XV.
Celebrating its 33rd season in 2018-2019, Ensemble Chaconne concertizes widely in the United States and abroad. The group has been called “a powerhouse of great playing” (Classical Voice of North Carolina) and has been hailed for “vitality and character, style and verve” (MusicWeb International).
