Most concert visitors have an idea of what makes repertoire "French", color, dance and sphere always come in mind. And of course, the rhythm of the French language. In this program we introduce music of the era which would become the French Style. We will show how an aria turned into an air, how a fantasia turned into a fantaisie etc. En passant we hope to prove once again that lesser know music can be a delight to the ears.

Price concert: € 24,-
