Let us Make the Most Brilliant Music…


The elegant central staircase and grand hall of Carrick Hill was the delightful setting for this concert of music from the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV, presented as part of the Adelaide Festival Centre’s French Festival.

Sopranos Bethany Hill and Kate Macfarlane, accompanied at the harpsichord by Anne Gardiner, lead us through the extravagance, opulence and intrigue of a day in the life of the court of the Sun King, with sublime music by composers including Charpentier, Rameau, Montéclair, Louis Couperin and his nephew François.
