Episode 4

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Thursday 13 December 2012

The death of Louis XIV in 1715 marked the end of royal patronage for Marin Marais. It also saw him rise to new heights of creativity. Shortly after that he astonished the musical world by publishing his most ambitious book of viol music to date. It was a period of change for Delalande too, with a reduction in his duties at court and the mounting of a new stage work in which Louis XV took part. With Donald Macleod.
