Notes and Editorial Reviews
Make the most of the beauty of the Chateau de Versailles gardens, the groves are exceptionally open to the public, the fountains’ water turned on and accompanied by music that in bygone days would bring them to life on the occasion of the Musical Fountains Shows. The Grandes Eaux de Versailles- Music of the Royal Festivities is a selection of works from the new label “Château de Versailles Spectacles.” Entirely recorded in the emblematic places of the Chateau, such as the Royal Opera, the Royal Chapel, La Cour de Marbre or the Little Queen’s Theater (Trianon), you will find compositions interpreted by the best and most promising artists. The works featured here include pieces by Lully, Delalande, Charpentier, Campra, Haendel, Cavalli, Biber, and Philidor.
