In Splendid Disgrace: Music for exiled Kings

From 1688 until 1713, James II and his son James III lived in exile from Britain as the guests of Louis XIV at St Germain-en-Laye. The italocentric Stuart exiles enjoyed a rich musical life under the guidance of Innocenzo Fede. In this programme we explore this prolific but neglected composer and other
transalpine works imported into France as well as some of the international and local music colours from beyond the four walls of the chateau.

"Elizabeth Dobbin's soprano is light and flexible, her approach both stylish and highly expressive .. the artistry of Sofie Vanden is to be savoured" Goldberg
