Redefining Rococo
The Four Nations Ensemble
The Ellie Warburg Residency Concert Series

Free with museum admission. Seating is limited—tickets will be issued at the door beginning at 10am Sunday, October 22.

Redefining Rococo celebrates the extraordinary gift of more than 1,350 works of art from the collection of financier J. Pierpont Morgan to the Wadsworth Atheneum 100 years ago. Planned in conjunction with the exhibition, Morgan: Mind of the Collector, the program complements the fanciful decorative objects in the exhibition through a music program that highlights the seductive, and even subversive, nature of the arts and music in eighteenth-century European courtly culture. Leclair, Telemann and other period composers.
