Les Délices completes their 10th Anniversary season with ground-breaking music from the 18th and 21st centuries that depicts the chaos of creation and the four elements of water, fire, earth, and wind. The program pairs Les Délices’ own arrangement of Jean-Féry Rebel’s The Elements with a newly commissioned, nature-inspired work for period instruments by young composer Theo Chandler.
Performers include: Kathie Stewart (flute), Debra Nagy (oboe), Julie Andrijeski & Scott Metcalfe (violins), Jaap ter Linden (viola da gamba), Anna Marsh (bassoon), Mark Edwards (harpsichord).
Les Délices‘ (pronounced Lay day-lease) polished, expressive, and dynamic performances of masterpieces and little-known works from the French Baroque have been garnering critical acclaim. Founded in Cleveland in 2006, Les Délices brings together artists with national reputations who share a passion for this exquisite yet seldom heard repertoire.
