Versailles and Paris Month: Musicians of Versailles
Saturday 9 February 2008 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)
Catherine Bott looks at some of the many composers who were employed by the French royal family from the time of Louis XIII up to the Revolution at the end of the 18th century. Musicians such as Marin Marais, the Couperin brothers, Andre Campra, Claude Balbastre, Francois Philidor, Louis-Claude Daquin and Andre Destouches all lived and/or worked at the palace of Versailles at some point during their career and wrote some of their best-known pieces for royal occasions.
