Presentation

Louis XIV was a King of Music: as shown by all the works composed for his “official” life, with Lully’s lyric tragedies, open-air carrousels and fanfares, Lalande’s Symphonies for the King’s suppers, Grands Motets for the Royal Chapel… But who knows the Sun King’s intimate music?

In the evening, the private apartment has its own compositions, played by the best musicians of the court. The harpsichord, viola da gamba and luth take precedence over drums and trumpets; the most magnificent singers stand a few steps away from the sovereign, in his bedchamber, to give him some musical beauty to nourish royal dreams…Around 1713, Lalande, the music superintendent brings together some musicians “requested by the King”: Marin Marais, Robert de Visée, Michel de la Barre, Antoine Forqueray, and asks them to come after the Grand Coucher, to present to Louis a last, informal and intimate moment of music.

 

For this exceptional evening, Thibaut Roussel has brought together the best musicians for a revival of the Couchers du Roi. The recording of this programme, made at the Château for the Château de Versailles Spectacles collection, will be released at the same time as the concert. An exceptional moment in perspective...

Available in the discographic collection of Château de Versailles Spectacles' label.
