The Alliance Française de Sacramento invites you to join us and our friends from Sinfonia Spirituosa for a wonderful baroque concert!

This program features works that range from 1629 to 1747, and will spotlight each performer in their distinctive role. Guest mezzo-soprano, Julie Miller, joins us in ferocious, passionate, and intimate arias by Handel and Rameau that speak of love lost and won. Sonata X, by early Italian composer Dario Castello, engages 2 violins and bassoon in dramatic, fiery dialog, supported by a continuo team of theorbo and guitar. Tomaso Albinoni's Sonata à cinque, composed in a later Italian style, is full of rich string writing and melodic charm. Artistic Director Lorna Peters will perform Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Forqueray's La Rameau for solo harpsichord, followed by Rameau's return tribute, La Forqueray, for strings, flute and bassoon. And since no Sinfonia Spirituosa concert is complete without French opera-ballet music, our program will conclude with exotic and colorful instrumental pieces from Rameau's Les Indes Galantes.
