CD - Les Arts Florissans

N°01 | Charpentier - Les Arts Florissans


Ensemble Marguerite Louise
Gaétan Jarry, conductor

Charpentier was Lully and Lalandes’ equal for the exceptional quality of his music.

For the Duchess of Guise he created works of infinite beauty, which Louis XIV particularly admired, including the Idylle en musique Les Arts Florissans (1685).

Gaétan Jarry and his young musicians give back living vitality to this allegory of the artistic golden age of the “greatest king of the world” who had just settled his court in Versailles, with himself in the guise of Apollo or as the Sun King.
