Programmes

 

The Marquise programmes are built around varied themes, and each one has its own story. Our programmes are pasticcios, in that, gems of the baroque music “assembled” from works by different composers are loosely woven together to form a story. We believe that the whole experience should combine visual, dramatic and musical elements. The concerts evoke the atmosphere of the 17th-18th century with period dress, poise, deportment and scenic accessories inspired by paintings of that era to complement and dramatize the musical experience.
