Amours Contrariées — Tragic Loves: Cantatas of Clérambault & Rameau

The period-instrument ensemble Les Bostonades has been sharing chamber music with New England audiences since 2005. Collaborating regularly with renowned Baroque specialists, the ensemble presents spirited, polished performances. Their playing has been described as “most engaging . . . generous, voluptuous, well delineated,” with “a poignancy of emotion” (Early Music America). An ensemble of flexible instrumentation, Les Bostonades has developed under the direction of Akiko Enoki Sato, an acclaimed harpsichordist who trained in Japan, the U. S. and finally Montreal, where her study of French Baroque music — stage works and music of the French clavecin school — influenced her artistic vision. The ensemble has an abiding interest in bringing to light the music of lesser-known French Baroque composers.

For this program, the performers will be Akiko Sato (director & harpsichord), Sarah Darling (baroque violin), Teddie Hwang (traverso) and Emily Walhout (viola da gamba). They will be joined by American tenor Zachary Wilder, who is recognized internationally on the operatic and concert stages in repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries. He works with many leading ensembles, including Les Arts Florissants, The Boston Early Music Festival, and The Monteverdi Choir & Orchestra. With Les Bostonades, he will perform two much-admired cantatas by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (d. 1749). These are small dramatic gems inspired by ancient myths, stories of the tremulous hopes, tender joys, and utter despairs of star-crossed lovers: Pyramus and Thisbe (the story adapted for Romeo and Juliet), and Orpheus and Euridice. From Jean-Philippe Rameau, there will be a romantic-pastoral cantata in which an impatient lover awaits “the charming object” of his affection, as well as several pieces for harpsichord, which are charming objects in themselves.
