Les Talens Lyriques

The ensemble, led by founder Christophe Rousset, rarely performs in the states and is currently celebrating the 350th anniversary of the birth of the composer François Couperin. Couperin, known as "Couperin the Great," was one of the greatest masters of French Baroque music. This performance is proudly supported by l’Institut Français.

The performance in Los Angeles, presented by LA Opera Off Grand, will be hosted at the Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School in #LosAngeles on October 11! San Diego Early Music Society presents the October 12 San Diego performance at St James by-the-Sea.

The event will feature chamber pieces, music for harpsichord, and the transcendent Leçons de Ténèbres du Mercredi Sain. The Les Talens Lyriques performance will dive into the lighter and darker shades of Couperin’s spectacular music.
