February 12 & 13, 2011
La Guitarre Royalle

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ll highlight the astonishingly beautiful playing of Toronto-based lutenist Lucas Harris, whose poetic approach has been called “a revelation” (Le Devoir).

Intimate solos and trios by Jean-Féry Rebel, Louis-Nicholas Clerambault, and Louis XIV's own guitar master, Francesco Corbetta will tug at your heart strings, while Boismortier's rustic Ballets de Village will put you in the mood to go dancing into the night. In a special nod to Valentine's day, Francois Couperin's rarely-performed "Portrait of Love" (Ritratto dell'amore) will explore the many facets of love - from pure joy to vivacity and sweetness - even its inimitable "je ne sais quoi"!

Les Délices regulars Scott Metcalfe (violin) and Emily Walhout (viola da gamba) will return to join Debra Nagy (baroque oboe) and guest Lucas Harris (theorbo & baroque guitar) for La Guitarre Royalle featuring works by guitar masters from the court of Louis XIV.
