Event Description

Echoes of Antiquity in the Lute Music of Versailles



Tickets and details:


Born out of the salons of the Grand Siècle, the 1652 manuscript called La Rhétorique des Dieux by Denis Gaultier offers an impressive synthesis of music, mythology, engraving, gold work, prose, and poetry.

Weaving ravishing music with the spoken word, Boston-based lutenist Catherine Liddell mines the mythological roots of lute repertoire of Versailles, one golden age mirrored in another.

This concert is co-sponsored by Salon/Sanctuary Concerts and La Maison Française of NYU and has been generously supported by the Florence Gould Foundation.
