    The reign of King Louis XIV became a second Renaissance in pre-modern France a century after the glory days of François I. Louis' mythologized image as the Sun-King raised up the institution of the French monarchy to almost divine status. He is often represented in grandiose form as a Greco-Roman god with superhuman powers. Louis symbolized for the nation-state of France both the grandeur and the excesses of a nobility classes that 2 generations later would be crushed in a bloody revolution by the rising middle class. Nevertheless, his kingdom was a realm of elegance, dignity and gentility that was the envy of the rest of Europe.

Claudio Monteverdi - Vespro della Beata Vergine, 1610. Sir John Eliot Gardiner at the Versailles Chapelle Royale with the Monteverdi Choir, the English Baroque Soloists and the Pages du Centre de musique Baroque de Versailles, Palace of Versailles, 2014. In 1964, Gardiner conducted it for the first time, and then he decided to found the Monteverdi Choir. This concert actually marks the 50th anniversary of this world-renowned vocal ensemble. Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras, please visit the support section of the website http://www.monteverdi.co.uk/support Parts: 2:10 Domine ad adiuvandum 4:38 Dixit Dominus 13:13 Nigra sum sed formosa 17:58 Laudate, pueri, Dominum 24:15 Pulchra es, amica mea 28:32 Laetatus sum 36:24 Duo Seraphim clamabant 43:53 Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum 48:54 Audi, coelum, verba mea 58:08 Lauda, Jerusalem, Dominum 1:03:33 Sonata sopra 'Sancta Maria' ora pro nobis 1:11:01 Ave maris stella 1:21:20 Magnificat The historical interest of this work is almost as great as its inherent qualities. Vespers are part of the daily Offices, or Canonical Hours, of the church, music for the Offices including psalms (with antiphons), hymns, and canticles, as well as chanted lessons (with responsories). Although inspired by the Church Office, Monteverdi's Vespers in many ways transcends the original concept, perfectly exemplifying the transition between austere Renaissance polyphony and sheer Baroque splendor. Monteverdi makes his characteristic contribution to sacred music in a bold, almost operatic, style, complete with daring stereophonic and echo effects, and includes a suite of instrumental dances, concerti sections for both voices and orchestra, and a love song. Completed in 1610, the Vespers was written for the court of the Gonzaga family in Mantua, where Monteverdi was employed from 1590 to 1612, and dedicated to Pope Paul V. But the composition's true home is undoubtedly the cathedral of St. Mark in Venice, where Monteverdi was appointed maestro di cappella in 1613. Indeed, the Vespers could well have been conceived with its echoing spaces, galleries, balconies, organ, and choir lofts in mind. The overture, for choir and orchestra, is manifestly operatic, and close to that of Monteverdi's first opera, Orfeo - an upsurge of joyous energy, interposed by an orchestral toccata and ending with a jubilant Alleluia. The instrumentation (cornets, sackbuts, a variety of single and double reeds, recorders, strings, organ, and harpsichord) is, with the exception of the instrumental ritornelli, mainly intended to contribute to the formal structure of the choral sections, coloring the choir in the manner of organ stops, as in the "Dixit Dominus," "Laetatus sum," "Audi, coelum," and the beginning and end of the closing Magnificat, the climax of the whole work. The ways in which Monteverdi treats the cantus firmus by incorporating it into the counterpoint of the choral writing, as in "Dixit Dominus" (Psalm 109), is not found in earlier choral literature, nor is the flowing, unfettered parlando (recitation) style used in "Nigra sum," a metrically free poem with allusions to the biblical Song of Solomon. The concerto "Due Seraphim" is probably the most interesting section in the Vespers. It is set for two "answering" voices - a sort of singing competition for angels - and almost exceeds the limits of human vocal technique. The choral writing is also demanding in its splendor and complexity, much of it in six, seven, and, as in the psalm "Laudate pueri," eight parts; yet the simplicity of the two-part hymn Ave Maris stella is also among the many treasures of this magnificent work. Back in 2010, Gardiner had already conducted the Vespro at Versailles' Chapelle Royale, winning broad acclaim; this is the reason why it was decided to film the 2014 concert. The title page of the first edition is inscribed "ad Sacella sive Principum Cubicula accomodata Opera" (for use in princely rooms and chapels). According to the conductor, Versailles Chapelle Royale is the perfect place to perform this masterpiece, because the spatial disposition makes the audience experience the feeling of Renaissance concerts: the architecture and the various levels enhance the echo and the dialogs between the singers, performing from different heights.

His contextual sleight-of-hand, which transforms banal items into sumptuous icons, takes on a psychological dimension through dramatic shifts in scale, spectacularly engineered surfaces, and subliminal allegories of animals, humans, and anthropomorphized objects. The subject of art history is a constant undercurrent, whether Koons elevates kitsch to the level of Classical art, produces photos in the manner of Baroque paintings, or develops public works that borrow techniques and elements of seventeenth-century French garden design. Organizing his own studio production in a manner that rivals a Renaissance workshop, Koons makes computer-assisted, handcrafted works that communicate through their meticulous attention to detail.

The reign of King Louis XIV became a second Renaissance in pre-modern France a century after the glory days of François I. Louis' mythologized image as the Sun-King raised up the institution of the French monarchy to almost divine status. He is often represented in grandiose form as a Greco-Roman god with superhuman powers. Louis symbolized for the nation-state of France both the grandeur and the excesses of a nobility classes that 2 generations later would be crushed in a bloody revolution by the rising middle class. Nevertheless, his kingdom was a realm of elegance, dignity and gentility that was the envy of the rest of Europe. The MIDI files used in this video were downloaded from IMSLP.com, midiworld.com and geocities.co.jp and edited using an iPhone app MusicStudio. The credits for the MIDI files go to the following individuals: Prelude from Te Deum by Marc-Antoine Carpentier, uploaded by Thomas Golaski to midiworld.com Prelude from Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Jean-Baptiste Lully, uploaded by Marc Lanoiselée to IMSLP.com Prelude from Cadmus et Hermione by Jean-Baptiste Lully, uploaded by Aeolian Consort to geocities.co.jp Excerpts from Carnaval de Venise by Andre Campra, uploaded by Marc Lanoiselée to IMSLP.com Marche des Candiots by Michael Richard Delalande, uploaded by Marc Lanoiselée to IMSLP.com I added basso continuo instruments such chitarrone, chamber organ, double bass and occasional harpsichord. I sometimes doubled the violins and cellos with oboes, English horns and bassoons as was customary in that time. I additionally adjusted the timbre of the instruments to evoke the hollow poignancy of Baroque instruments. I adjusted some tempi to be suitable for a slow courtly ballet as seen in one of the lithographs. I changed the note values of the Te Deum Prelude by Marc-Antoine Charpentier to have a more a 6/8 inégal (unequal) rhythm than a 4/4. The paintings are late 17th century French and Italian works. Many are landscapes of the palace grounds at Versailles where much of the musical entertainment took place. There are also dramatic portraits of Louis XIV and his entourage in various heroic poses reminiscent of ancient classical styles. I also included a great landscape painting of Venice by Canaletto to remind us of the scenery imagined by Campra and Delalande when they composed their Venetian themed ballets.

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. The project focuses on the close relationship between each work and the space surrounding it. The works have been selected specifically for Les grands appartements at the piano nobile, composed by Les appartements du Roi (The King’s apartments) and Les appartements de la Reine (The Queen’s apartments), which formed a suite of several rooms “en enfilade”. These large apartments are the most prestigious and important spaces of the Castle, since they were the official halls of the Sun King, composed as one of the richest expression of art and architecture. In this video: impressions from the press preview with statements by Jeff Koons. The exhibition runs until December 14, 2008. Versailles / France, September 10, 2008. Video by Christophe Ecoffet.

http://www.vernissage.tv | Last year, American artist Jeff Koons presented his works at the Chateau de Versailles near Paris, France. (Jeff Koons at Versailles at VernissageTV: click here: http://vernissage.tv/blog/2008/09/16/jeff-koons-versailles/ ) This year, French artist Xavier Veilhan shows his works in the Gardens, Royal Court, and apartments of the Versailles Palace. Xavier Veilhan: My project for Versailles mainly addresses the outdoor realm, following an east/west axis across the estate, from the Place dArmes to Le Nôtres formal gardens. I will be placing several works or groups of works conceived especially for this exhibition, which will articulate the continuity that joins the sites history to its contemporary protraction. This is a project that is dynamic, classical, open and universal, aiming to establish a new bond between visitors to the place and the spaces they come into contact with. Xavier Veilhan was born in Lyon in 1963. He lives and works in Paris. Xavier Veilhan works in a variety of media such as photography, sculpture, film, painting and installation art. The exhibition Veilhan at the Versailles Palace runs until December 13, 2009.

When African American models such as Bethann Hardison, Pat Cleveland, Alva Chinn, and Billie Blair boarded the plane to Paris in 1973, they had no idea they would help change the course of fashion and pull off its biggest coup. The 1973 Grand Divertissement at Versailles became history and legend for pitting the crème de la crème of French couture fashion - Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin against upstart American designers Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows and Bill Blass. It was not only the first time French and American designers were shown together but it smashed the glass ceiling loudly and irrevocably for ethnic models in high fashion across the globe.

http://www.vernissage.tv | Interview with Takashi Murakami 村上 隆 at the occasion of his exhibition at the Chateau de Versailles near Paris, France. Interview and video by Christophe Ecoffet. After Jeff Koons in 2008 and Xavier Veilhan in 2009, this year Takashi Murakami takes over the Château de Versailles. It's Takashi Murakami's first major retrospective in France. VernissageTV correspondent Christophe Ecoffet met the artist in the garden of the palace for an exclusive interview. On display in the 15 rooms of the Château and in the gardens are 22 major works, 11 of them have been created exclusively for this exhibition. According to the curator of the show, Laurent Le Bon, Murakami Versailles "is a walk, a trail throughout the "landscape area" of Versailles... The general public will be able to view and admire his creations, which are often technical masterpieces. The allegories and other myths of Versailles thus carry on a dialogue with the dreamlike creatures of Takashi Murakami, sometimes inspired by traditional Japanes art." Among the works presented to the public for the first time are the giant "Oval Buddha" on the Water Parterre in the garden, "Flower Matango" in the Hall of Mirrors, and "Yume Lion (The Dream Lion) in the Apollo Salon of the Château. Takashi Murakami was born in 1962 in Tokyo, Japan. He has a PhD in Nihonga painting from the Tokyo University of the Arts. Murakami has developed a signature style by combining the most modern techniques with traditional Japanese art. His work is inspired by manga and kawaii (cute) culture. In 2001, Murakami established the Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd. based in Tokyo and New York, and now also in Los Angeles, which serves as a breeding ground for artists. He became known to the general public when fashion designer Marc Jacobs first asked him to reinterpret the Louis Vuitton monogram for their Spring/Summer 2003 line. Takashi Murakami lives and works in Tokyo, New York, and Los Angeles. Murakami Versailles / Interview with Takashi Murakami 村上 隆. Château de Versailles, September 9, 2010.
