Jean-Baptiste Lully was appointed composer to the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV, during one of the most extraordinary ages of arts patronage. Surrounded by the wondrous riches of Versailles, Lully is credited with developing the French Baroque style and popularised many of the dance forms we associate with the Baroque period: Gavotte, Minuet and Sarabande.

Rameau, considered to be Lully’s successor, developed a notable reputation as a composer of opera and instrumental works. Les Indes galantes is an exotic opera-ballet concerned with the universality of Love. The music and dances wowed the audience attending the Paris premiere and it became the most popular work in his oeuvre.

We're delighted to feature in this programme CSO musicians Anthony Ferner and Thomas Eves performing Vivaldi's concerto "La Notte" (The Night) for flute and strings and Torelli's Trumpet Concerto in D major.

In association with Pegasus Bay Wines the CSO is delighted to offer the opportunity to attend a pre-concert wine tasting fundraising event. Hosted by Paul Donaldson, General Manager of Pegasus Bay Wines the ticket includes tasting along with a selection of cheeses.
