Musically, they are brothers: there is such affinity in the way they explore harmony and touch, line and color – together they conjure the sense that they are trying to spell out a language that only has beautiful words in it.”


Performances Up Close

About the Event

Part of our Performances Up Close series, audience is seated onstage alongside the musicians in an hour-long program.

Journey back to the 18th century as we travel from the London of Henry Purcell to the Rome of Arcangelo Corelli and indulge in the glamorous spirit of the era’s music. Our guides—young virtuoso baroque violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte and harpsichordist Justin Taylor, colleagues in famed ensemble Le Consort—will treat us to forgotten gems they have unearthed from old libraries, transcriptions of the most popular opera arias from the period, and masterpieces that continue to resonate to this day. In the spirit of musical performances of the time, you will sit onstage alongside the duo as they spin the magic that has garnered international critical acclaim—including the prestigious Diapason d’Or in 2019.
