Sin­fo­nia Spir­i­tu­osa cel­e­brates its return to live Cal­i­for­nia per­for­mances with a pro­gram titled “Ritour­nelle—The Return”. Tele­mann is fea­tured in our name­sake piece, and in his Ouver­ture-Suite, which spot­lights out­stand­ing gam­ba soloist Eva Lymen­stull. The unusu­al instru­men­ta­tion of two vio­lins and two cel­los in Couperin’s amaz­ing­ly lush La Sul­tane, the ele­gant and enter­tain­ing dances of Lully’s Music for the King’s Sup­per, and the sump­tu­ous, play­ful and fiery move­ments from Rameau’s operas dis­play this ensemble’s pas­sion for French music from this period.
