LOUIS XV
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute
  John Lenti ~ theorbo & guitar


Although he witnessed a period of unrestrained creativity and development in art music, Louis XV did not share the profound love of music for which his great-grandfather Louis XIV was famed, either at the age of five when he became king or later during his 59 year reign. Nevertheless the vibrancy of the musical activity around him during the early decades of his reign, for which his grandfather was largely responsible, will be demonstrated in this performance of Pierre Danican Philidor, Jean-Marie Leclair, Michel Blavet and others.

BURNEY'S TRAVELS
Susie Napper ~ cello
Hans-Jürgen Schnoor ~ harpsichord
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute

Charles Burney (1726-1814) met Handel, Haydn, CPE Bach and many of Europe's celebrated composers over the course of his life and traveled extensively through France, Italy, Austria and Germany between 1770 and 1772 to interview musicians and gather information for his History of Music. The breadth of national and evolving musical characterictics that he encountered will be reflected in chamber music by George Friderick Handel, Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christian Bach, Frederich II of Prussia, Franz Joseph Haydn, Franz Benda and Giovanni Battista Sammartini.
