Elisa Citterio director

Bliss, grief, delight: experience a kaleidoscope of emotions with 18th-century music that will open your heart and mind.

Curated and directed by Elisa Citterio, this concert is a microcosm of our season theme, “Passions of the Soul.” In their quest to awe and inspire, 18th-century composers strove to describe the desires of the soul and touch the hearts of listeners with poignant and captivating music. 

This program takes you on a winding journey, visiting the peaks and valleys of the emotional landscape: from the grandeur of Lalande’s Chaconne—inspired by the magnificent fountains of Versailles—to Locatelli’s mournful Sinfonia Funebre, and Telemann’s suite “La Bourse,” an irreverent depiction of the roller-coaster of emotions experienced by investors in the stock market.

Please note: single ticket purchasers will be able to re-access this concert for a full 48 hours after the original broadcast time. You can revisit your ticket link, contained in your confirmation email, to watch until November 28, 2020 at 7:59pm EST.

Please note that the original broadcast date of October 22 has been rescheduled to November 26. Ticketholders will be contacted by email regarding this change.
