Viola da Gamba Concert Calendar for Greater New York City
Fall 2017

Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 8:00 p.m.
Ars Antiqua - City of Light: Philidor, Paris & the Rococo

Music Room Church of St. Mary the Virgin
191 South Greeley Avenue, Chappaqua, New York
CD Release Concert & Champagne Reception
Featuring newly discovered music by the revolutionary composer & chess master François-André Danican Philidor. Mark Kramer, Viola da gamba with guest artists. "Philidor is a wholly unexpected but ravishing delight, coming as he does after long periods of studiously formal French court music. This is Paris, not Versailles: intimate, colourful, unorthodox, and as brilliant as a shaft of sunshine cutting through a day of cloud. The music is full of uncloying sweetness, unlaboured grace and unforced elan vital, and it¹s played to joyous perfection by the virtuosi of Ars Antiqua who hit every note with such sympathetic warmth that you feel they must all have known Philidor personally" - Simon Schama, Art Historian & Presenter of BBC Documentaries.
Tickets $35.00
