Music at the Time of Louisbourg

The Fortress of Louisbourg, the largest fortification ever erected by France in North America, was built on what is now Cape Breton Island to defend France’s fishing and trading interests and to protect the sea approach to the colony of Quebec. “Music in the Time of Louisbourg” has been created to celebrate Louisbourg’s 300th anniversary and features French music from the period of Louisbourg’s foundation in 1713 to shortly before its destruction by the British in 1758. The program includes works by Couperin, de Visee, Rameau, Daquin, Hotteterre, Rebel, Chedeville, Philidor, Blavet and Boismortier, many of which have been chosen because of their references to soldiers, sailors, native peoples and the sea – in short, to the many aspects of life at Louisbourg.

Something Choice and Excellent
The title of this program comes from Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1730 memorandum to the Leipzig town council, in which he refers to the performances of the virtuoso musicians in the employ of King Augustus II in Dresden as being “something choice and excellent to hear”. From 1717, when he first visited Dresden to perform, until his death in 1750 Bach maintained close ties with the leading musicians associated with the Dresden court. In this fascinating program the La Tour Baroque Duo performs works by Johann Sebastian and Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, Johann Gottlieb Graun, Johann Adolph Hasse, Sylvius Leopold Weiss, Christian Pezold and Georg Philipp Telemann and explores the personal connections they had with Bach.
