Migration of peoples across borders has shaped the human experience for millennia. Whether physical or metaphysical, humanity survives by way of continuous movement—our culture, beliefs, and histories are marked by impermanence. This album is an exploration of that concept—traveling between early and contemporary repertoires, based in texts, melodies, and timelines that refuse to be conveniently pinned down by norms.

Boston Early Music Festival presents
Charpentier’s Les Plaisirs de Versailles & Les Arts Florissants
The GRAMMY-winning BEMF Chamber Opera Series returns to the music of Marc-Antoine Charpentier with an all-new disc featuring two chamber operas by the French Baroque master. Les Plaisirs de Versailles—first presented by BEMF in November 2016—depicts a rousing and satirical argument among personifications of the many delight’s found in Louis XIV’s great palace. Les Arts Florissants also exalts the Sun King, showing the forces of Art and Peace triumphant over the agents of war and discord, thanks to peaceful leadership of Louis XIV.
This CD will be released in conjunction with the June 2019 encore performances of VERSAILLES: Portrait of a Royal Domain at the 2019 Festival Festival. The CD will be available in person at the Festival and online starting on June 9 for shipping later in June.
