Amandine Beyer joins Tafelmusik : Music of the French Baroque [fr]
French violinist and guest director Amandine Beyer joins for The French Connection: Music of the French Baroque , from December 4 to 7, 2014 at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, Jeanne Lamon Hall. These performances mark her Canadian debut.
The two pieces that frame The French Connection —a suite from Jean-Philippe Rameau’s opera Zaïs and Jean-Féry Rebel’s Les Éléments — both begin with extraordinary and evocative depictions of Chaos and its gradual dissolution. The programme includes a suite from André Campra’s L’Europe galante, Michel Corrette’s 25ème Concerto comique, and Jean-Marie Leclair’s Concerto for violin in A Minor, featuring Ms. Beyer as soloist.
“As a French-born musician, I really tried to make this programme interesting for the orchestra and the public – and for myself too! Tafelmusik is well acquainted with French repertoire, so there is already common ground, but I want to give them a ‘French accent’! I want to communicate my love of this repertoire so that we can produce together a genuine French colour and create a distinctive, unique atmosphere,” said Ms. Beyer.
