In 2018, the 'Golden Gallery' of the Central Bank of France, and more precisely it's renovation in the style of the 18th century by the Count of Toulouse, celebrated it's tricentenary. Like the Hall of Mirrors at the Château de Versailles, it counts among the most lavish ceremonial galleries of France: it was in this glorious setting that several scenes of the movie Marie-Antoinette, by Sofia Coppola, were shot. On this occasion, the baroque ensemble 'Concert de la Loge' and it's musical director Julien Chauvin drew upon this incredible setting, it's paintings and it's sculptures but also it's history, and brought together various pieces from the baroque and classical repertoire: Lully, Rameau, Couperin, Boccherini, Charpentier, Vivaldi, Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Haendel... Thanks to an elaborate scenography and to a smart lighting design, the program is also a journey through the mysteries of the visual works displayed in the gallery : for instance the allegories of the young Louis XIV at the beginning of his reign, the story of Henry IV... all of which is explained at length in a gorgeous booklet written by art specialists.
