An Ode by the Baroqueux
6 February 2012 | by draneassableSee all my reviews

Former New Yorker, Eugene Green's austerity conveys the intensity that motivates the revisionist/exploratory movement of early music which is accurately referred to as Baroqueux. It certainly helped explain to my puzzled wife why we seem to cry so much! This story, so emblematic, suggests how profoundly personal, resistant and even revolutionary this impulse is, and what historical/institutional factors it has encountered in our generation. Green is a vital theorist of baroque performance as well as a cinematographer. His loose caricature of the anglophones' most popular baroque luminary is truly hilariously. And, of course Vincent Dumestre's ensemble and Claire Lefilliâtre are always important!
