Versailles and Paris Month: A Musical Day in the Life of Louis XIV

Monday 18 February 2008 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

BBC Radio 3's series dedicated to the music of Paris continues as Lucie Skeaping recreates a possible day in the life of King Louis XIV. After waking in his sumptuous bedchamber, the king follows a busy schedule before entertaining guests at supper and retiring late in the evening. At every part of the day, musicians are on hand to entertain or soothe him, or to trumpet his arrival. Olivier Baumont, a harpsichordist and expert on French Baroque music, guides Lucie through the Palace of Versailles to illustrate some of the music the king may have heard.

This is a repeat of the programme broadcast on Sunday 10 February 2008. View full details.

Duration:

1 hour
