With a façade inspired by temples of ancient Greece, this beautifully preserved edifice is well deserving of its National Historic Landmark status. Beneath the dramatic coffered ceiling of the Grand Hall, three “crème de la crème” early music virtuosi perform all five of Rameau’s Pièces de clavecin en concerts of 1741 — a pinnacle of the late-French Baroque, whose fanciful movements will delight the ear with their vivid drama and sensuality. Blumenstock’s “hair-trigger virtuosity is authoritative, gleefully demented, and mean as a hornet" (The Washington Post).
