Exotic decorations on cabinets, porcelain vessels, and embroideries imported from China inspired a popular design trend in Baroque Europe, one reflected in various objects in the Rienzi collection and on the harpsichord featured on this program. Musical selections by Teodorico Pedrini, Henry Purcell, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Christoph Willibald Gluck illustrate how also composers of this time created equally lavish-sounding textures.

Preceding the concert, program curator and harpsichordist Mario Aschauer and Rienzi Assistant Curator Misty Flores will discuss European imaginations of China.
