Les Délices: Concertos Comiques @ BOP STOP

May 7 from 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Les Délices: Concertos Comiques @ BOP STOP

Les Délices (pronounced Lay day-lease) explores the dramatic potential and emotional resonance of long-forgotten music. Founded by baroque oboist Debra Nagy in 2009, Les Délices has established a reputation for their unique programs that are “thematically concise, richly expressive, and featuring composers few people have heard of.” The New York Times added, “Concerts and recordings by Les Délices are journeys of discovery.” The group’s debut CD was named one of the “Top Ten Early Music Discoveries of 2009” (NPR’s Harmonia), and their performances have been called “a beguiling experience” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), “astonishing” (ClevelandClassical.com), and “first class” (Early Music America Magazine).

Les Délices made its New York debut before a sold-out audience at the Frick Collection in May 2010. Highlights from recent seasons included performances for Music Before 1800, Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, San Francisco Early Music Society, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and at Columbia University’s Miller Theater. In addition to touring engagements, Les Délices presents its own annual four-concert series in Cleveland art galleries and at Plymouth Church in Shaker Heights, OH, where the group is Artist in Residence. Les Délices has been featured on WCPN, WCLV and WKSU in Ohio, WQXR in New York, NPR’s syndicated Harmonia and Sunday Baroque, and had their debut CD featured as part of the Audio-guide for a special exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (Watteau, Music, and Theater). Les Délices eagerly anticipates the release of their 3rd CD, “Age of Indulgence,” in the fall of 2016.

5/7 BOP STOP PROGRAM:

Comedy, Popular tunes, and Instrumental Virtuosity
Works for oboe, recorder, and strings by Corrette, Boismortier, and more.

Joseph Bodin de Boismortier and Michel Corrette were gifted musicians and shrewd businessmen with a flair for both comedy and drama. Each had a knack for responding to contemporary trends and competing fashions while developing unique personal styles that integrated the vogue for Italian music together with popular songs and so-called “pastoral chic.” We feature Corrette’s fun and fabulous Concertos comiques alongside popular tunes, Boismortier’s chamber music, and readings from Paris’s Opéra Comique.

Tickets are $25 in advance; $30 at the door. Students for $5. Please click the following link to purchase tickets.
