TELEMANN ‘Alster’ Overture Suite (30’)
BACH Suite No 4 in D, BWV 1069 (20’)
LULLY Suite, Le Bourgeois gentilhomme (20’)
RAMEAU Suite from Les Indes Galantes (20’)

MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV – Director / Harpsichord

Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev directs a packed programme of beautiful, fun-filled French and German Baroque music. First stop is Germany, as Maxim directs Telemann’s musical depiction of Alster Lake near Hamburg – complete with cannon fire, echoes, birds, frogs and merry-making peasants.

Things then take on a distinctly French flavour with the JS Bach’s Suite No 4 – a set of dance pieces in the French Baroque style. This in turn leads us very nicely to Versailles and the court of Louis XIV, for Jean-Baptiste Lully’s suite from his humorous opera-ballet Le Bourgeois gentilhomme.
Then, to finish, the imaginative and sensual music of Rameau’s Les Indes Galantes. Vive la France!
