The Chase
In the 18th century, hunting was more than a leisure activity—it was a potent symbol of power, virility, and even good government. Nicholas Kraemer leads a wonderfully evocative program that brings the natural world of “the hunt” to life, from the hunting scene in Rameau’s opera Hippolyte et Aricie to Haydn’s Chase Symphony to Bach’s delightful Hunt Cantata.

TELEMANN | Overture in D Major (Hunting Horns)
BACH | Cantata No. 208 (Hunt Cantata)
RAMEAU | Hunting Scene from Hippolyte et Aricie
HANDEL | “Va tacito” from Giulio Cesare
HAYDN | Symphony No. 73 (La Chasse)
