In the last years of Louis XIV’s reign musical life at court was in decline and society turned to the city for artistic stimulation and the rapid growth of concerts there are witness to this. France was establishing a clear musical identity but Italian music retained its popularity and influence on both the cantata and sonata genres, so the reference to Corelli (whose music was often performed in Philidor’s Concert spirituel) is particularly appropriate. Alongside more familiar composers such as François Couperin (1668-1733) this programme will involve instrumental music and cantatas by Elizabeth Jacquet de La Guerre (1665-1729) and so marks not only the 350th anniversary of her birth but also the work of one of the first women to achieve professional status as a composer.
