"Pirame, for Tisbé, since earliest childhood, the god who makes people love experienced the power ..."
Program dedicated to the work of Louis-Nicolas de Clérambault, sonata and cantatas.
The French cantatas of the beginning of the 18th century are - unlike the German cantatas of the same period - secular works, considered as real “serials”. Composed for one or more voices accompanied by a continuo bass and most often top instruments forming "the symphony", they can be considered as operas, but in chamber format.
This program revolves around cantatas for solo voice by a composer little known nowadays and yet one of the main authors of the Age of Enlightenment: Louis-Nicolas Clérambault, who tried to perform, in the forms of the cantata and of the sonata, a synthesis of Italian and French aesthetics.
