The Choir of the Paris-Saclay Campus will give two concerts on February 2 and 4, 2018. The baroque music, creative, rich and abundant will be in the spotlight!
On the program, two masterpieces of spiritual vocal music:
Antonio Vivaldi : Magnificat RV610
Even during his lifetime, the Magnificat established the immense renown of the red priest. In all Europe then he was copied and sung. From this song of praise of the Virgin composed in a noble style, majestic and borrowed from lyricism, emerges a moving atmosphere with a real inner dramatic tension.
Marc-Antoine Charpentier : Te Deum H146
Grace, majesty, brilliance, this great ceremonial court motet perfectly illustrates the flamboyant character of French Baroque. His prelude is particularly used as indicative of Eurovision broadcast in 1953. Contrasts, theatrical effects and diversity are the most striking features of this glorious work.
Followed by organ suite
Musical genre in France during the 17th and 18th centuries.
