Music of the Baroque: "The Chase"—Haydn, Handel, and Rameau 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.   TUESDAY, October 22, 2019 8:00 PM Harris Theater, Chicago 205 E.
