Marking the tricentennial of the death of the Sun King, Alpha Classics, boasting a rich catalogue of benchmark Baroque recordings and a collection in partnership with the Château de Versailles, is celebrating ‘A reign full of music’. • More than any other sovereign of his time, Louis XIV (1638-1715) loved the arts and was responsible for their exceptional development. • All disciplines were the object of royal attention, thanks to both the considerable means the monarch devoted to them and to the structuring of each of the Beaux Arts in an academy, resulting in a fantastic harvest of masterpieces.



In the wake of the celebrations surrounding the tercentenary of the death of Louis XIV, here is an ideal introduction to a repertoire that has served as much as benefited from the royal absolutism of that time.
