Greek mythologies inspired this program for Cleveland, Ohio-based Les Délices, directed by Baroque oboist Debra Nagy, along with rising star soprano Clara Rottsolk. Making their Houston debut, Les Délices offers depictions of tales from Homer’s Odyssey by featuring cantatas of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (Le Sommeil d’Ulisse) and Thomas-Louis Bourgeois (Les Sirènes). Hear Penelope pine away from afar, as symbolized by Jean-Féry Rebel’s violin sonata La Fidelle. Delight in the drama of hero Ulysses as he confronts ship-wrecking storms and succumbs to the bewitching allure of siren songs – all set to vibrant, fanciful music. A pre-concert talk begins at 6:45 p.m.
