Le Consort at University of Chicago
A Journey Through Baroque Europe (Chicago Premiere)
“Ravishing, exhilarating and uniquely beautiful,” as described by BBC Music Magazine…
this leading baroque ensemble of four young musicians from Paris brings a delightful program showing the immense expressive range and creativity of Bach, Vivaldi, Corelli, Purcell, Rameau, and others. You will also hear two magnificent settings of “Follia” — the era’s most recognizable melody, and one which still resonates today.

Presented in partnership with the France Chicago Center.
