The 24 Violins Cross the Alps

Last season, our largest ever group of strings recreated the official string band for France’s court at Versailles—for our 2023–24 finale, this smashing orchestra reunites in a new program celebrating the influence of Lully’s 24 Violons du Roy on German and Italian music, through works by Muffat and Corelli.
