The Miami Bach SocietyÂ in collaboration withÂ The Consulate General of France in MiamiÂ presentsÂ an exceptional concertÂ Les Arts FlorissantsÂ William Christie director “Songs of Love & Drinking Songs”Â (Airs sÃ©rieux et Ã¡ boire).Â Called a “classy, sexy entertainment of short songs” by London’s The Guardian, this evening by William Christie’s internationally acclaimed Baroque music ensemble, Les Arts Florissants (LAF), is based on a collection of 17th century airs de cours, a category of simple music meant to be sung by laborers and ladies maids alike. The genre soon moved from the street to Grand SiÃ¨cle drawing rooms, where these songs of love, loss, and licentiousness were relished by the upper echelons of the rich and aristocratic. Presented by Miami Bach Society, the performanceâ€”which features LAF founder William Christie at the harpsichordâ€”is part of the Ensemble’s U.S. tour, and marks its Miami debut. The program will present singers skilled in the nuanced performance of airs de cours that range from lovesick shepherds and solitary longings to joyful drinking songs. Repertoire includes works by Couperin, Charpentier, Chabanceau de la Barre and Michel Lambert, as well as an opportunity to enjoy the rarely-heard HonorÃ© d’Ambruys. VIP Reception will begin immediately following the end of the concert. Concert tickets start at $35 per person, andÂ VIP tickets are $150 per person.
