Le Roi s’amuse: music for a king’s pleasure

Florilegium explore the intimate and elegant sound-world of France in the decades around 1700 and perform music by composers known to both Louis XIV and Louis XV, including works by some of the titans of this period in France – viol virtuoso Marin Marais and flute pioneer Jacques-Martin Hotteterre – as well as lesser-known names such as Jacques Morel, Jean-Baptiste Barriére and Michel de la Barre.

Florilegium “consistently rewarding … bright and attractively vital approach … baroque music of the highest quality” Canberra Times


Siobhan Armstrong “truly revelatory … a more powerful and persuasive advocacy for these pieces could hardly be imagined” Early Music


Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
