Go for Baroque

When: Sat., May 14 2011

Members of Les Délices, Cleveland's French Baroque chamber orchestra, will be performing tonight at Tregoning & Company gallery. Anchoring the concert is Myths & Allegories, a dramatic depiction of tales from Homer's Odyssey told by way of oboe, violin, viola da gamba, theorbo, harpsichord, and the pitch-perfect pipes of soprano Clara Rottsolk. A Seattle native making her Cleveland debut, Rottsolk has been making quite a buzz in classical music circles: The New York Times called her voice "clear and appealing," and the Philadelphia Inquirer admired her "opulent tone and communicative emotional presence." Founded in 2006, Les Délices focuses on little-known works from the French Baroque era performed on period instruments. Besides touring engagements, they present an annual concert series at galleries like Tregoning, in celebration of the city's flourishing arts community. Tonight's concert is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors; get yours online at lesdelices.org, where you'll also find a complete schedule of upcoming concerts. Tregoning is at 1300 West 78th St. For gallery information, call 216-281-8626 or visit tregoningandco.com. — Cicora
