Myths & Allegories

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Les Délices performs Myths & Allegories presented by Houston Early Music.
Rising-star soprano Clara Rottsolk is featured in this program, which was released as Les Délices’ second CD recording in November 2012. Myths & Allegories weaves dramatic depictions of tales from Homer’s Odyssey together with instrumental chamber music inspired by Greek mythology, and features cantatas by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (Le Sommeil d’Ulisse) and Thomas-Louis Bourgeois (Les Sir├¿nes). The hero Ulysses confronts storms at sea, shipwrecks, the tantalizing allure of siren songs, and encounters with the Cyclopes ÔÇô all set to music ÔÇô in the course of this colorful, fantastic program. Even Ulysses’ long-faithful wife pines from afar as symbolized by Jean-Féry Rebel’s violin sonata La Fidelle.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10″]Info & Tickets[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”16288″ border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_empty_space height=”10″][vc_single_image image=”15930″ border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_blank” img_size=”large” link=”https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lesdelices2″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
