LOUIS XIV's BASSOON presents the East Coast premiere of 5 five new suites from the manuscript discovered by Jeffrey Cohan in Paris which details "the little concerts given for his Majesty in the evenings” in 1713. Several of the 67 suites which were “collected and put in order by Philidor le Pere", Louis XIV's music librarian Andre Danican Philidor l'ainé, were premiered last year and included in last year's festival, and this year's presentation of 5 additional suites is performed with bassoonist Anna Marsh, baroque flutist Jeffrey Cohan and violist Steve Creswell, all of whom performed this new group of suites for the first time in 8 performances in the Pacific Northwest in March, in this CHCMF performance with the addition of violinist Marlisa Del Cid Woods.

How better to conclude our 20th anniversary celebration than with the most famous concerti of the Baroque? This ground-breaking interpretation by Ensemble Caprice intersperses Shostakovich’s Op. 87 preludes, which were deeply influenced by Bach but hold to their own musical language. Travel from 18th century Germany to 20th century Russia and witness the Baroque master communicating with his modern counterpart. Fascinating!

A Renaissance Christmas: Music of Flanders and Italy circa 1500-Folger Shakespeare Library
In the courts of Renaissance Italy, princes vied with each other in filling their chapels with the famous singer/composers from the North. As learned polyphony helped the rulers of Florence and Ferrara display their erudition and good taste, glimmers of a more popular native Italian style started appearing, first at the court of the Sforzas in Milan. Many of these new style works honored Mary, the most popular of all saints. With voices, winds, and strings, the Consort explores the contrast between these styles in this program of seasonal music by Josquin, Ockeghem, Obrecht, and Compère.
