"The stream of currents, cross-currents, and counter-currents that flowed through mid-eighteenth-century Europe resulted in a fascinating and diverse repertory of music, much of it unknown to modern audiences . Tonight's concert by the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra provides an opportunity to sample works for the string ensemble by French and German composers of that time. The character of a great amount of music for the early orchestra is a product of the opera and the ballet. In fact, the institutionalization of both forms of the "grand spectacle" was largely responsible for establishing the orchestra as a standard ensemble. Moreover, most of the progressive musical idea s of the time, both in vocal and instrumental music, radiated from Italy. The Italian influence was a force to be reckoned with throughout Europe."
