The Art of Fugue: Music of Bach, Telemann, and Marais

Friday, October 16, 2020, 8 pm EST


Boston Early Music Festival

The exciting young instrumentalists of Nevermind, Anna Besson, flute, Louis Creac’h, violin, Robin Pharo, viola da gamba, and Jean Rondeau, harpsichord, join us from the chapel of a converted monastery in the heart of the Belgian countryside, with a delightful program of chamber music by Marias, Telemann, and J. S. Bach, including selections from The Art of Fugue. Hailed as a “breath of fresh air in the field of early music” (Wales Arts Review), these four friends met while studying in Paris and recognized their shared passions and vibrant musicianship.
