Moonlit Mozart

The music of Mozart can be revelatory – particularly when combined with period instruments’ signature transparency and rhythmic verve. Artistic Director Debra Nagy has assembled North America’s finest period-instrument woodwind players for this all-Mozart program including selections from The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni plus Mozart’s transcendent Serenade in C minor “Nachtmusik” (K388) for pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and natural horns.

“Debra Nagy’s clever programming and her rolodex of superb musicians produced yet another splendid concert…You won’t hear finer baroque wind playing anywhere — or another program like this one anytime soon.” –


Arcadian Dreams

Les Délices makes musical magic in a new program featuring “breakout artist” (Boston Globe) soprano Hannah De Priest. With “a voice that is theater itself” (Classique News), De Priest inspires the sun to rise in Lefebvre’s cantata Le lever de l’Aurore, embodies a faithful lover in Rameau’s Le berger fidele, and suffers the pain unrequited love in Handel’s passionate Mi palpita il cor. Les Délices’ brilliant ensemble includes oboe, violins, and continuo performing additional works by Corelli, Scarlatti, and Bourgeois.


14th Century Avant-garde

Medieval music sounded remarkably modern and sophisticated in the hands of forward-thinking composers like Guillaume de Machaut, Jacob Senleches, and Johannes Suzoy. Writing in the 14th century, their music displayed unparalleled freedom of thought, fearlessly explored rhythmic complexity, and pushed the limits of what was possible to both notate and perform. Sophie Michaux (mezzo soprano) and James Reese (tenor) join Scott Metcalfe (vielle and harp) and Debra Nagy (voice, harp, and medieval winds) unite for this fascinating – and mesmerizing – program that effortlessly combines expression with reason and purity with pleasure.


A Moment's Oblivion

Acclaimed tenor Nicholas Phan joins Les Délices for A Moment’s Oblivion, the first installment in Les Délices’ three-year Mythology Project. This fascinating program pairs Baroque cantatas that posit forgetting as a balm (Montéclair’s La Bergère and Le Dépit généreux) and instrumental works that take listeners on a journey seeking truth or resolution (Marais’ beguiling Labyrinth and Couperin’s famous Mysterious Barricades) with a new commission from Vietnamese-American composer Viet Cuong. Based on a Confucian myth, Cuong’s A Moment’s Oblivion explores the effects of a mysterious illness, experimental treatments, and miraculous recovery on a patient and their community.


The Mermaid

The Mermaid promises to lure you on a fantastic journey filled with tales of pirates, fearsome storms, raucous drinking songs, toe-tapping fiddle tunes, rousing sea shanties, and more. Special guest vocalist and Irish bouzouki player Seán Dagher (renowned for his work on the Assassin’s Creed video game series, sea shanty programs with La Nef, and Canada’s Skye Consort) joins soprano Elena Mullins Bailey and Les Délices’ ensemble of oboe, recorder, violin, and cello for this fascinating and fun program.
