Couperin: l’Art de la Danse

Sunday 2 September, 3.00 pm

Utrecht Early Music Festival: Hertzzaal Tivoli Vredenburg, Vredenburgkade 11, 3511 WC Utrecht

Our dancers will dance where appropriate. This is an exploration: can music be danced to, if it was not in the first place composed to be danced to? At the centre of the programme is Jean-Féry Rebel’s composition ‘Les Caractères de la Dance’, written as an interval piece for solo dancer. Find out more
