Jean-Baptiste Lully

November 28, 1632 - March 22, 1687
born in Florence, Italy, composed during the Baroque period
Although born in Italy, Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) made his career in France, where he was its most prominent composer during the second half of the seventeenth century. He was a dancer as well as a musician, and wrote over 30 ballets for the court of Louis XIV, in which he and the King would perform. His innovative tragédies lyriques, which include Psyché, Atys, and Thesée, established opera as an art form in France, and constitute some of his most significant and enduring work. His operas are notable for their grace and elegance, their prominent use of dance, and their spectacular theatrical effects. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

very pretty music

A new favorite along with Corelli and Bach...
I sure wish I could learn how to listen to baroque music, but I guess I just don't have the IT skills to operate this website. Edward Pastore, 85 year old retard.
Uplifting music that combines the grandeur of Handel with the wit of Corelli.
I agree with Anderson. Lully est peut etre le compositeur je prefere sur tous.
This is my favorite classical composer following W. A. Mozart.
Lully makes me want to leave this world for one of more romance and elegance. It's a part of a world we lack now. Our common bonds between the Baroque and modern eras seem to be war and deceit.
Merveilleux.

Love to play his music on the cello!

Just discovered Lully.
Absolutely love Lully. His music is the best example of 17th century baroque music.
if u have the patience, really delightfull music. i also like de lalande who may be more profound. lully was the french handel of his day. try the cd: 'music for the king's suppers.' unless i am confusing that with de lalande. some say that french music from louis 14th never attained the angst and beauty of same era german or english music. probably true but very polished and charming with hints of melancholy. (whoops - am i describing a wine?) one does want to get up and danser. harvey c**ming
hey what can i say, i'm going for baroque.
