Couperin: L’Apothéose de Lully

[Instrumental Wednesday]

L’Apothéose de Lully was François Couperin’s (1668 - 1733) homage to his great musical predecessor, Lully, and depicts the elder composer’s elevation to Mount Parnassus. On Parnassus, Lully and Corelli meet and are persuaded by Apollo that the reunion of French and Italian music will achieve a musical perfection hitherto unknown.
