Book Description

The work of Baroque composer Jean-Baptiste Lully, regarded as the founder of French opera and a key figure in the development of court ballet, enjoys growing popular and scholarly interest. This volume brings together thirteen international scholars to present the best recent research on Lully's life, his work and his influence. Illustrated with musical examples and photographs, the volume also contains surprising archival discoveries about the composer's early life in Tuscany and important new information about his manuscript sources. It will interest musicologists, historians, performers and listeners alike.
