About the Event
Submerge yourself in the atmosphere of Louis XIV's reign. Stéphane Fuget conducts Couperin's exquisite Leçons de Ténèbres amid the splendors of the Sun King's great palace.
Refinement was the byword of French music of the period, and the skillful blending of vocal colors and spiritual texts of Couperin's music goes a long way to explaining the reverence in which the master was held by many later generations of musicians. The last of the three Lessons is widely held to be one of the greatest works of the French Baroque. The combined expertise of Stéphane Fuget and his ensemble makes this an unmissable event.
