The second concert on the opening day of the festival will feature gems by French composers. Marin Marais (1656–1728) and Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1645/50–1704) both worked under the reign of the Sun King, the "musical king" of France, Jean-Baptiste Lully. Marais is known for his works for viola da gamba, which will also be heard in this concert. Marin Marais will also perform a trio for two solo instruments, not specified by the composer, and continuo. Marc-Antoine Charpentier is best known for his vocal music, but he has also composed instrumental music for worship and court. Unlike his contemporaries and his own practice, Charpentier has marked the sonata heard in this concert with a precise instrumentation: two (German) flutes, two violins, two gamba, lute and harpsichord.
