Grand Harmonie transports you to the beginning of silent films in France as we paint the sound world of art nouveau. Reaching into the 20th century with an 1870s Streicher piano, trumpet and strings, this concert pairs chamber music with novel and experimental shorts from the era. Culminating with a screening of The Assassination of the Duke of Guise with Saint-Saëns’ original score for the film, this program will immerse you in a total cinematic experience.
Saint-Saëns: Septet in E-flat Major Op 65 (1880)
Godard: String Quartet in G Minor Op 33 (1876)
Saint-Saëns: L’Assassinat du duc de Guise op. 128 (1908)
ABOUT GRAND HARMONIE
Grand Harmonie is a vital new force in the cultural landscape, using a core group of wind players as both a chamber ensemble and the backbone of an orchestra. Our rich and diverse community of musicians is centered in Boston and New York, and dedicated to historically-informed performances of music from Mozart to Brahms on the instruments for which it was written.
