THE ART OF MODULATION II

      François André Danican Philidor, history's first great chess master and world chess champion for almost 5 decades, was the son of Louis XIV's celebrated music librarian who compiled the suites heard in January's program. He composed the six Sinfonias collected as The Art of Modulation in 1755 in a clear demonstration of his cerebral prowess, as in Berlin four years earlier when he simultaneously played 3 chess games blindfolded and won them all. 
      A  completely  new selection of suites from The Art of Modulation and  other works from the mid-18th century.
