A program of “goût réuni,” or united taste, brings us the music of German composers inspired and influenced by the French style. Known as “Lullists” after Jean-Baptiste Lully, works Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, Georg Muffat, and Georg Philipp Telemann are featured this week, presented by El Gran Teatro Del Mundo under the direction of Julio Caballero Pérez.

Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert January 10, 2020, at the Basel Music Academy, presented by the Basel Friends of Early Music. Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, tonight’s program will be available as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is accessible.
