First Fridays: Les Délices

Featured Audio

On this live edition of First Fridays, Les Délices performed selections from their season finale, a program called Concertos Comiques. This all-instrumental program for oboe, recorder, violins, viola da gamba, and baroque guitar showcase instrumental virtuosity. Joseph Bodin de Boismortier and Michel Corrette were gifted musicians and shrewd businessmen with a flair for both comedy and drama. Each had a knack for responding to contemporary trends and competing fashions while developing unique personal styles that integrated the vogue for Italian music together with popular songs and so-called “pastoral chic.”
