Live from Cadogan Hall, London
Presented by Christopher Cook
Roger Norrington recreates the distinctive sounds of the orchestra of the French court of Louis XIV, Les 24 Violons du Roy. With suites by the important court musicians of the day - Lully, Marais, Campra and Lalande.
For this special project, the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles has painstakingly recreated these early instruments, and they are played by musicians from the Royal College of Music and the French conservatoires of Paris and Orsay, reviving these unique musical textures as they might have been heard 300 years ago.
Lully: Armide - suite
Desmarets: Circé - suite
Marais: Ariane & Bacchus - suite
Campra: Tancrède - suite
Lalande: Suite no.5 des Symphonies pour les Soupers du Roi (extracts)
