The Consort celebrated the holidays in the beautifully decorated Folger Theatre with two Baroque masters with Corelli & Charpentier: Masters of the Notes in 2005. Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) was, in many ways, the most influential composer of his time. Active as a violinist and teacher as well as composer, his six printed collections of instrumental music were admired and emulated all over Europe. Marc-Antoine Charpentier (c.1643-1704), although he never held a prestigious appointment at the French court, was influential in his own right, skillfully blending elements of Italian and French style in his tuneful sacred music and music for the stage. The Folger Consort performed Corelli & Charpentier from December 16 to December 18, and December 23 to December 25, 2005.
