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 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.
