Le Concert des Nations

Zankel Hall
The colorful instrumental ensemble of diverse instruments that was developed in 17th-century France became the standard of the Baroque world. This concert features music by the giants of the French Baroque, from Marin Marais—the 17th century composer whose life story was the subject of Tous les matins du monde, the film for which Jordi Savall provided the soundtrack that propelled him to international celebrity—to18th-century instrumental innovators like François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Jean-Marie Leclair.
