More Info:

Le Retour des Dieux sur la Terre and Le Caprice d'erato are part of the tradition inherited from Louis XIV of occasional pieces that served to illustrate major events at Court: Composed four years apart, the first to celebrate the wedding of Louis XV and Marie Leszczynska in 1725 and the second for the birth of their first son in 1729, these two divertissements are veritable little concert operas in which splendid grand narratives, triumphal overtures, surprising dances, solemn choruses and grandiose finales follow one another.Alexis Kossenko invites us here to savour the delights of these musical evenings, which gradually spread to all the salons of the 18th century, and where everything seems to invite us to celebrate!
