Jordi Savall conducts a concert of beautiful French Baroque music featuring ballet music by Guillaume Dumanoir and opera Alceste by Jean-Baptiste Lully. Savall showcases Georg Philipp Telemann and George Frideric Handel on the viola da gamba, which is rarely featured as a solo instrument with an orchestra. Handel's beloved Water Music brings the rich orchestral colors of the French ballet suite to full blossom, combining it with German musical sensibilities and a bit of an English accent.
