This week's concert from the Frick Collection features a return visit from New York’s own Aulos Ensemble, which was founded by five Juilliard graduates in 1973. The ensemble is known for its Christmas concerts in front of the Neapolitan Christmas tree at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, lectures at universities around the country and its pioneering status among American period-instrument chamber groups.

After four decades, the Aulos Ensemble continues to explore new ideas. This program comprises pieces from the late 17th and 18th century France. The ensemble begins and concludes the concert with opera suites composed by Jean-Philippe Rameau.

Aulos Ensemble:
Christopher Krueger, flutist
Marc Schachman, oboist
Linda Quan, violinist
Myron Lutzke, cellist
Arthur Haas, harpsichorist

Program details:

Jean-Philippe Rameau: Suite from “Les Fêetes d’Hébé”

Francois Couperin: Troisième Concert Royal

Claude-Benigne Balbastre: Pièces de Clavecin

Jean-Philippe Rameau: Suite from “Les Indes galantes”
