We close our sixth season with 18th-century orchestral music inspired by Mother Nature herself! From Haydn’s symphonic morning scene (Symphony no. 6, “Le matin”) to Jean-Féry Rebel’s musical depiction of the Ancient Greek creation myth (Les Élemens), you’ll readily see that many baroque and classical composers found abundant inspiration for their music right outside their front door. Opera composers were notorious for drawing inspiration from the natural world, and we'll demonstrate this with excerpts from Rameau’s comic masterpiece Platée and Handel's Scipione, featuring soprano Julianna Emanski. We'll close with the Brandenburg Concerto no. 1 by J.S. Bach, whose genius itself was a force of nature!
