Dardanus

Momentum Ensemble steps into the world of Baroque music, performing a selection of French and German works from the era.

Momentum Ensemble will immerse audiences in the ornate music of 18th century, exploring the intricacies and sophistication which inspired the composers of the Baroque era.

The first half of the 18th century gave rise to a new genre of French opera, the tragédie en musique, a style of operatic writing that truly comes to life in Rameau’s Dardanus. The orchestral suite captures all of the intrigue and emotion that led Dardanus to be hailed as an acclaimed operatic work, and one of Rameau’s most inspired musical creations.

The remainder of the concert features uplifting music by François Francœur and Johann Friedrich Fasch. Lesser-known, yet esteemed composers who were considered innovators of their time. Harpsichord virtuoso Erin Helyard leads Momentum Ensemble as it presents this charming collection of Baroque works in sophisticated surrounds.

Free admission. Registration essential.
