A program featuring Maria Jette, soprano, and Immanuel Davis, traverso, as soloists. The influence of Italian cantatas and concertos like those of Vivaldi on the music of 18th Century France was immense. We’ll hear how the dramatic idioms of these Italian genres became models for virtuoso French flute music by Michel Corrette and others.
