You will discover how this repertoire has been built and enhanced with regards to its compositions and perceptions throughout history; sociological, economic and political evolutions; and the cultural splendour of the Grand Siècle. You will be amazed by the sensitive work of great composers who expanded the musical influence of France in all Europe.

This is a seven-stage journey, with no pre-requisite – one episode a week for seven weeks beginning on June 2nd.
