Beneath the stately dome of a 1907 Beaux Arts landmark, the founding director of Les Talens Lyriques leads the “mighty yet nimble” period-instrument orchestra Tessarae Baroque and vocal soloists in a program of dramatic music by two giants of the Baroque — and almost exact contemporaries — George Friderich Handel and Jean-Philippe Rameau. Conducted with Rousset's “sparkling dynamism” (Classica), Handel’s youthful secular cantata for soprano and bass, Apollo e Dafne, will be followed by suites, arias and duets from operas by Handel (Ariodante) and Rameau (Les Indes galantes and Dardanus).
