Musical repertoire in duo

1. Music at Versailles!

Welcome to the court of the Kings of France, in the luxurious and extravagant Châteaux de Versailles. This was the residence of the Kings Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI. Numerous parties and entertainments were organized at the court, which made Versailles an
enchanting place where things were always grander, more extraordinary and more full of fantasy.

 

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself in the dazzling Hall of Mirrors where, among other things, the wedding of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette was held.

Push open the door to the sumptuous Grand Apartments of the King and the Queen where music was always played during the meals, and finish with a detour to the Royal Chapel where the Cliquot organ is found. This organ was used by one of the most important exponents of Baroque music in this period - François Couperin.

 

Music was an integral part of the life in the kingdom of France, King Louis XIV loved music. He demanded it during meals, masses, hunting and receptions. Queens, like Marie Leckzinska wife of King Louis XV, Marie-Antoinette, who played the harp and harpsichord, and the favored Madame De Pompadour and the Countess of Barry, also played an important role.

3. Musical impressionism

The end of the 19th century saw the appearance of an artistic trend called musical impressionism.

 

Carried by the wave of romantic and baroque movements, impressionist music shrouds itself in the mystery of inexpressible emotions. Claude Debussy is considered the leader of this musical movement. Music and art developed together and built strong artistic links. Each impressionist composer took inspiration from painters like Monet, Seurat, Renoir but also from poets like Mallarmé and Verlaine...

 

Let your mind roam freely in front of a celebrated canvas by Claude Monet whilst the music of Claude-Achille Debussy floats over you enveloping your senses in dreams and wonder.
