French Music from the Court of King Louis XIII at Cadogan Hall

28/07/2012 from 15:00 to 16:30


In association with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, the Royal College of Music - along  with the conservatoires of Paris and Orsay - has been involved in a special project to recreate the distinctive sound of the world's first professional orchestra, founded by Louis XIII in 1626.

Few of the original instruments have survived but specialist reconstructions allow us to savour the unique texture and rich inner voices as they might have been heard at the French court over 300 years ago.



Armide – suite 15'

Circé – suite 10'

Ariane et Bacchus – suite 15'
