Tango for Two: Rare Music Harpsichord Lecture/Recital (Bone Hall)

When: Fri., Feb. 12, 5 p.m. 2016

The harpsichord is not dead. The locally rooted organization Aliénor projects this message, commissioning new works at a feverish clip and publishing anthologies every few years. This concert pairs harpsichord duos by Krebs, Rameau, and Couperin with a half-dozen new works by composers from the United States, United Kingdom, and Israel. Expect lots of sideway dances, ornate figurations, and the nasal twang only a harpsichord can produce. Part of the NC HIP Festival. —Dan Ruccia
