First off, Versailles and the court of Louis XIV, for Jean-Baptiste Lully’s suite from his humorous opera-ballet Le Bourgeois gentilhomme. The sensual music of Rameau’s Les Indes Galantes follows, then over to Germany as Maxim directs Telemann’s musical depiction of Alster Lake near Hamburg – complete with cannon fire, birds, frogs and merrymaking peasants. Completing the concert is JS Bach’s Suite No4 – a set of dance pieces in the French Baroque style.
