La Flûte italienne
25 January 2018 @ 19 h 3018$ – 35$
Francis Colpron en sonate
For this occasion the ensemble will comprise three instrumentalists
Francis Colpron will play Italian works from the 17th and 18th centuries for this recital. Instrumental virtuosity, which became exuberant in the Baroque era, was never gratuitous but rather served to express emotion. Such virtuosity developed at the dawn of the 17th century, first among violinists, but soon spread to highlight the distinctive characteristics of wind instruments. In this concert, Francis Colpron will play both recorder and traverso, accompanied by Mélisande Corriveau on cello and Mark Edwards on harpsichord.
