While Versailles was draped in the heavy fabrics of guilt and failure, penance and penitence, Antoine Watteau was breaking with tradition, creating the new genre of the fete galante. His delicate brushstrokes and mastery of color and nuance are echoed in the music of his contemporary Francois Couperin. As art historian Tav Holmes guides us through the unique, idealized world of Watteau, Boucher and Fragonard, the Four Nations Ensemble and soprano Sherezade Panthaki will perform works of equally evocative beauty by Leclair, Clerambault, Devienne, and Telemann. $45.
