6:30pm ~ Pre-Concert Recital

Get your seats early! In this exclusive recital, Jeffrey Grossman will début a new French harpsichord hand-crafted by master builder Allan Winkler, modeled after a 1765 instrument by François-Étienne Blanchet II. This new clavecin is voiced entirely in bird quill and boasts an exquisite soundboard painting by celebrated botanical artist Maria Bablyak.

7:30pm ~ A Night on the Seine

Paris, 1741: Selections from Couperin’s Les Nations alongside music by Lully, Rebel, Telemann, and a special concerto by J. S. Bach will take your breath away in this grand season finale.
