About

Margaret Faultless director Francois Couperin Les Gouts-reunis - Huitieme Concert, dans le gout theatral Jean-Philippe Rameau Suite from Dardanus This programme contrasts two generations of French composers with music from two masters of the period. In an exciting collaboration between the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Experience Scheme and the Royal Academy of Music, music by Rameau and Couperin are presented in a new context. Instrumental and dance music from Rameau's opera Dardanus is lifted from the opera pit to the concert platform, and, in a striking new arrangement for a large ensemble, the two groups of young musicians come together to perform the suite from Couperin's Les Gouts-reunis, aptly reflecting Couperin's own musical manifesto depicting the collaboration between French and Italian styles of music.
