Music of the Age of Enlightenment

3:30pm – 5:30pm
¥3,000 (on the door)

Spend an evening listening to the sounds of the 18th century, where science and reason rose to the forefront of intellectual thought and philosophy. Known as The Age of Enlightenment, Age of Reason, Century of Lights, le Siècle des Lumières, Aufklärung, L’Illuminismo, the period was a highlight of cultural creativity. The musical perspective on the revolutionary period will start in Rome with Corelli’s 1700 publication of his opus 5 violin sonatas and ending in Vienna with Beethoven’s 1797 publication of his opus 8 Serenade in D major. The performance will feature Nayeon Kim on the period violin, Yura Nakajima on the period viola and Arnie Tanimoto on period cello and viola de gamba.

The performance will take place from 3.30pm at the Karura Hall in Kyodo, Tokyo.
