Conducted by Christophe Rousset
LA Opera Off Grand presents a special concert by the renowned French Baroque ensemble Les Talens Lyriques, led by its founder Christophe Rousset. Celebrating the 350th anniversary of the birth of composer François Couperin (1668-1733), one of the greatest masters of French Baroque music, the performance will explore the lighter and darker shades of Couperin’s delicately beautiful music. The selections include chamber pieces, music for harpsichord, and the transcendent Leçons de Ténèbres du Mercredi Saint.
The concert will take place in the intimate environment of Zipper Hall, located on the campus of The Colburn School (200 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles CA, 90012).
