Forma Antiqva’s second concert focuses on the emblematic “Commedia dell arte” character, Scaramouche. Thus, through this theatrical vision, they offer a view of the music of the great French Baroque masters such as Lully, Marais, Couperin, Leclair and Corrette. Wonderful music which recalls airs and landscapes of another period when comedy and music went hand in hand.
