FROM HEAVEN TO HELL: THE DRAMA OF THE FRENCH BAROQUE

A performance by Mango Baroque with spoken commentary

This program presents the rich, sublime, sometimes terrifying extremes of French music in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Soprano Marguerite Krull is joined by period instrumentalists Dongmyung Ahn (baroque violin), David Bakamjian (baroque cello), and Rebecca Cypess (harpsichord) in performing little-known cantatas and instrumental music with spoken commentary.  The program includes works by Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, Johann Jacob Froberger, Jean Bodin de Boismortier, and Louis-Nicolas Clérambault.  Julia Doe, Assistant Professor in the Department of Music at Columbia, will provide commentary in discussion with the musicians.
