Long before the Revolution, even before the end of the long reign of the Sun King, the great palace at Versailles was surely haunted by the shades of the many immortals who passed through its halls on to eternity. Of that train of palpable spectres none was more richly memorialized than Jean-Baptiste Lully, the notorious Superintendent of the King's Music. In his life the Florentine-born Lully, skilled in dancing, violin playing, comedy, composition, business, politics, real-estate, and amours with persons of both genders, had been beloved of his patrons and protegées, feared and reviled by his rivals, and mocked by those who could afford it.

Our program features three musical homages to Lully. The tragic and heart-felt Tombeau de Lully, is one of the sublime masterpieces of Lully's greatest pupil, Marin Marais. The weird Tombeau de Lully of Jean-Féry Rebel is a macabre story too scary to hear in the dark. And finally the great François Couperin, too young to remember Lully himself, but surely well acquainted with his ghost, offers a comic-serious opera-without-words in which Corelli and the Lyric Shades first compete with Lully in performance of a menuet, and then welcome him to Parmassus.

The program is completed by J-P Rameau's homage to three elder colleagues, the viol virtuosi Marais and Forqueray, and the dancer Cupis.
