Le Poème Harmonique
Enter a candle-lit realm of enchanted music and motion as Le Poème Harmonique makes their San Diego debut. Their program is a celebration of Venice in the Golden Age of the Baroque, when art music and popular forms came together and mingled. From the madrigals of Monteverdi to the unjustly neglected music of Francesco Manelli, Le Poème Harmonique weaves a magical atmosphere, both auditory and visual.
Starting as a regular concert, Venezia dalle calli ai Palazzi develops into a world apart, thanks to the stage direction of Benjamin Lazar, who has worked with the singers to recreate authentic Baroque expressive gesture in performance.
