When Louis XIV died, the court of Versailles who’s been smothering at a dark bigoted time could take a deep breath again. During the first years of regency and then at young and radiant Louis XV’s advent, musical taste changed and one got excited for a new style – les récréations en musique. These fickle and inventive instrumental plays enabled a whole generation of composers to finally meet success. No more scholarly prayers and endless protocol balls ! Now people swear only by delightful conversations and masked ball !
