Les Fêtes Royales in Baroque Versailles

For more than a half century, Jordi Savall has built a legacy as one of the most engaging musical personalities of his generation, in performances that marry meticulous research with virtuosic musicianship. A favorite of BEMF audiences since our very first Concert Season, he returns to BEMF with his renowned ensemble Le Concert des Nations performing music by Rameau, Marais, and Philidor written for the grand royal concerts of Louis XIII, Louis XIV, and Louis XV of France.

“One of the greatest living forces in the rebirth of early music.”
