A rising number of home foreclosures, slowing economic growth and the falling dollar are signaling doom to some economists and consumers. However, unemployment rates are still at historically low national levels, and some prognosticators suggest that the doom-and-gloom scenarios are overblown. What challenges must the future president be prepared to handle in terms of the economy? With the election less than a month away, join presidential candidates advisors Taylor and Tyson as they discuss and offer the economic perspectives of Senators Obama and McCain.

San Jose Chamber Music Society Presents:

LES PALADIN ensemble

Jérôme Correas, Director & harpsichord; Isabelle Poulenard, soprano; Jean-Francois Lombard, tenor; with flute, two violins, basson, cello theorbo
Program: ‘The King’s Mistress’: baroque music written for, sung by or favored by Madame de Pompadour - by MOURET, RAMEAU, MONDONVILLE, LULLY, DESTOUCHES, FRANCOEUR, REBEL.

Pre-concert talk: TBD

Madame de Pompadour (pictured above), favorite of King Louis XV of France, transformed a hall of Versailles into a theatre where she loved to entertain the court, performing songs written for her by the most popular composers of the day, such as Rameau, as well as ‘older’ music (by Lully for one). She was a true artist with a high, virtuosic voice, and was a fine actress. The King built Le Petit Trianon for her at Versailles, 1763-68. Jérôme Correas founded Les Paladins ensemble in 1997 to recreate such experiences as this program, which they performed at Versailles, and to revive neglected and great French and Italian baroque repertoire. In 2002 and 2006 Correas sang for us Fauré’s song cycle La bonne chanson.
