Thoroughbass
Amy Moore (soprano), Stephen Freeman and Shaun Warden (violin), continuo by Shaun Ng (viola da gamba) and Diana Weston (harpsichord)
In its first concert for 2018, Thoroughbass presents Semelé. Taking its title from the cantata by Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, this all-French program features acclaimed soprano Amy Moore with violinists Stephen Freeman and Shaun Warden, and continuo by Shaun Ng (viola da gamba) and Diana Weston (harpsichord). The story of Semelé is one of overweening vanity and ambition. Semelé has become the lover of Jupiter as mortal, but she wants recognition of her lover as Jupiter the god. For this demand she must pay the ultimate price. With ensemble music by Rebel and Marais, the concert demonstrates all the richness of French high baroque.
