Monteverdi John Eliot Gardiner Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists The Royal Chapel Palace of Versailles (2014) "Vespro della Beata Vergine" (1610) Introduction: Monteverdi’s Marian Vespers of 1610 was his first sacred work after his first publication twenty-eight years prior, and stands out for its assimilation of both old and new styles, although it cannot be specifically classified as prima pratica or seconda pratica, per se. The Vespers were published in July 1610, in combination with a six-voice mass which parodied a motet of Nicolas Gombert; In illo tempore loquante Jesu. Today, over four hundred years later, the precise intentions of this large work are not clearly known or understood. This has been a great topic of debate among musicologists for decades, and it has even ...
The Chateau of Versailles remains forever the emblematic symbol of Louis XIV, whose reign lasted for almost half a century. It is recognized as one of the most beautiful works of art of the 17th century France. The most symbolic of the rooms is no doubt the Hall of Mirrors. During the next century, under the reign of Louis XV, the Chapel and the Opera were completed. The Chateau ceased to function as the seat of official power in 1789 with the French Revolution. This program presents a tour of the many rooms and works of art inside of France's national treasure. The Orangery at the Chateau of Versailles was designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 17th century.

The Palace of Versailles or simply Versailles, is a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. In French it is the Château de Versailles. It is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the centre of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime. In the 19th century the Museum of the History of France was founded in Versailles, at the behest of Louis-Philippe I, who ascended to the throne in 1830. Many of the palace's rooms were taken ...
The Château de Versailles presents the exhibition Jeff Koons Versailles in the Royal Apartments and in the gardens of the Castle. The show presents seventeen Jeff Koons works, including his most significant works from the Eighties to these days.
