Soprano Florie Valiquette joins historically-informed early music ensemble Les Talens Lyriques for a delightful mix of dances, arias, cantatas and instrumental works in a variety of Baroque musical styles, ranging from French to Italian to Spanish and to German.

Our program was recorded live in concert June 1, 2022 in Stockholm’s German Church, sometimes known as St. Gertrude’s Church (Sankta Gertruds kyrka) as part of the Stockholm Early Music Festival. Thanks to Classical WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’ll be able to bring you tonight’s broadcast as a stream for thirty days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is available.
