Program: French Musical Delicacies

Elegant music for dancing and listening from the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV.

At the court of Louis XIV, the “Sun King”, the arts received an unusually warm welcome. King Louis himself was a passionate and excellent dancer, for which only the best composers wrote ballets and operas. Elegant Baroque dance – with original choreography and period costume – is performed by Lenka Horalová, soloist of the ensemble Alla Danza and a feast for the eyes. Together with the extravagant virtuosity and gentle beauty of the sounds of the viola da gamba of Petr Wagner and the other Baroque instruments of the musicians of the ensemble Plaisirs de Musique, this concert bring closer the atmosphere of an evening at the court of Versailles.
