Jean-Baptiste Lully had come a long way – in both senses – before collaborating with the playwright Molière on the comédie-ballet Le bourgeois gentilhomme in 1670. Born in Florence in 1632, he had moved to France as a teenager to teach Italian to Louis XIV’s cousin Anne-Marie-Louise d’Orléans, the Duchess of Montpensier. Having already joined the service of Louis XIV as a violinist and dancer, in 1653, aged 20, he became compositeur de la musique instrumentale. He took over the direction of La Petite Bande – the smaller ensemble that complemented the 24 Violons du Roy (La Grande Bande) established by Louis XIII – and finally in 1661 was appointed surintendant de la musique du roi.

We are pleased to announce the availability of this release in DSD 64, DSD 128 and DSD 256, as well as the original DXD recorded release. These higher resolution DSD bitrates were produced from the original DXD recording using a Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation by NativeDSD Mastering Engineer Tom Caulfield.
The sonic advantage to these new Stereo DSD 64, DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases, as with all higher DSD bit rate releases, is the wider audio frequency passband prior to the onset of modulation noise.This results in allowing the listener’s DAC to use gentler and more phase linear filters for playback of the music.
