CLASSICAL | "The Sun King"


If you've never had a chance to visit Versailles, attending Pegasus Early Music's Sunday concert may be the next best thing.  Rochester's resident experts in Renaissance and Baroque music will present the sounds of Louis XIV's court with the "The Sun King," a program featuring works by the influential François Couperin and lesser-known composers of the day including lisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre and Marin Marais. In addition to performances by harpsichordist Michael Beattie, soprano Laura Heimes, and viola da gambist Lisa Terry, Peggy Murray will dance in the style customary at the Sun King's court. Earlier in the week, Pegasus will also perform as part of the 8 p.m. screening of "All the Mornings of the World" at the Dryden Theatre (900 East Avenue) on Thursday, February 11.

Pegasus Early Music will perform "The Sun King" on Sunday, February 14, at Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 North Fitzhugh Street. 4 p.m. $10-$75. 703-3990;
