At the height of the French monarchy, Louis XIV, the “Sun King” devoted much time and energy to support the arts. One of his most famous musicians, Jean-Baptiste Lully, produced not only great music but attracted the best composers to work with him. Here we place Lully alongside his incredibly talented musical protégés.
Lully Overture and Passacaille from Armide for Flute, Strings and Continuo (1686)
Marais Suite II in G minor from Pièces en Trio for Flute, Violin, and Continuo (pub. 1692)
Rameau Pièces en Clavecin de Concert No. 5 for Violin, Cello, and Continuo (pub. 1741)
Couperin Concerts Royaux No. 4 for Flute, Violin, and Continuo (c.1714)
Rebel Les élémens for Flute, Two Violins, Viola, and Continuo (1737)
