Selecting from Rameau's fascinating orchestral and ballet music, Marc Minkowski creates an imaginary symphony with irresistible dance rhythms, ingenious harmonies and innovative orchestration.
Les Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble supports the renewal of Baroque music in France and more generally the use of period instruments and period style. The projet des Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble proposes a progressive and lyrical re-evaluation, from baroque music to modern music, and programming certain works which have been neglected for unjustifiable or obscure reasons. This project makes the ensemble one of the most evolved, inventive and original music groups in the world.

Recorded in 2003, live at the Theatre de Poissy, Salle Moliere.
