  • Philippe d’Orléans, Régent from 1715 to 1723 was an aesthete whose ancestors, his grandfather Louis XIII and his uncle Louis XIV, were like him great lovers of music. Philippe played and also composed music. The most talented artists of the young generation were his teachers: among them, Charpentier, Campra and Gervais.

    With unfailing flair, the young prince knew - as Louis XIV did at the beginning of his reign - how to showcase the composers of the new musical art of the "Goûts réunis", resolutely French with a tinge of Italy. As the old King was more and more losing interest in opera and social activities, the Palais Royal becomes a centre of artistic creation and hitherto unheard sounds. While Marc-Antoine Charpentier and André Campra are well known, many other of the Régent's protégés, notably Jean-Baptiste Morin whose style is in turn scholarly and voluble, remain to be discovered.
