The Festival opens on Friday, August 7, with a trio of stunning orchestral works by three French masters. The high-minded musical ideals and splendor of the era are fully evident in the Ouverture & Suite of dances from Jean-Philippe Rameau’s opera Naïs. Here beauty and grandeur are enhanced by a third trait: velocity! As first violinist at the Paris Opéra, Jacques Aubert had an ear for music that would be suitable for drama and dance. His D Major Concert de Symphonie, an early incarnation of what would become the French symphony, is a delightful, foot-tapping tour of dance forms. Finally, Jean-Féry Rebel’s imaginative and vivid work for orchestra, Les élémens, depicts the creation of the world from chaos using motifs associated with earth, air, fire, and water.

Rameau: Suite from Naïs
Aubert: Concert de simphonies - Suite No.2
Rebel: Les Élémens, simphonie nouvelle
