      EVENT DETAILS
      The Bach Players - Pour le souper du Roi

      Music by Rameau, Jacquet de la Guerre, Marais, Rebel, Anglebert, Clérambault and other composers of the age of Louis XIV, the 'Sun King', performed on violin, viola da gamba, theorbo and harpsichord.

      The Bach Players are known for their engaging programmes of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music, played on original instruments. Their concerts are lively, informal events in which the musicians engage actively with their audiences.

      Tonight's programme paints a musical picture of the chamber music presented to Louis XIV by his favourite composers. Composers who were allowed into the inner circle of the king were given the title ‘musicien pour la chambre du Roy’: their tasks included providing music for the king in his private rooms. Some of the best chamber music of the period was written for these occasions.

      Cost: £16 (£1 for full-time students)
