From the Court to the Stage:

The Rise of the French Oboe Band

One of the world's finest Baroque oboists, Gonzalo X. Ruiz brings his new ten-member ensemble Symphonie des Dragons to New York and Boston for their world début. Join this exceptional assortment of oboes, recorders, and bassoons, plus harpsichord, as they explore beautiful and varied music by Lully, Philidor, Purcell, Handel, and Marais, and trace the development of the oboe band from the Court at Versailles to the theater stages of London.
