Jean-Baptiste Lully: Bourrée

Esteemed Readers, here is another wonderful vigorous composition by Jean-Baptiste Lully. The origin of the bourrée as a folk dance comes to the Medieval times & the region Auvergne. This is a very energetic performance & I recommend you to try. 😊 As we know, Louis XIV adapted many popular dances to the Court life, showing his respect to France & its rich cultural tradition. So, the bourrée was one of its hits.

This one is a piece from the Baroque Opera “Le Mariage Forcé” 1664 created by Moliére & Jean-Baptiste Lully for His Majesty.

Vive le Roy!😊
