This recording realises Barthold Kuijkenís long-held desire to restore to Jean-Baptiste Lully, and to French Baroque orchestral works in general, the power and intensity that once held the musical world in thrall. To the grandeur, finesse and diversity of the genre he has brought original source material to inform specific bowing techniques and the use of ornamentation. The result, as with Telemannís Suite in E minor, which stands firmly in the Lully tradition, and Rameauís magnificent Suite from Dardanus, evokes the spectacle and splendour of Versailles.
