A Celebration of Baroque Dance Louis XIV’s passion for dance inspired composers throughout Europe so much that, for all his warmongering, perhaps his biggest victory lay in the gradual spread of French dancing styles – La belle danse. By the end of his reign it was said that ‘there is not a single court in Europe where the dancing-master is not French’. Rediscovering the nature of these distinctive dances has in turn led to a reassessment of their music and a fresh perspective on the great composers who wrote them including Lully, Rebel, Handel and Corelli. “consummate skill and musicianship” New York Times www.adrianbutterfield.com
