King Louis XIV was very fond of his “humble” abode in Versailles and designed certain rooms for the pure purpose of Pleasure. Charpentier’s divertissement, Les Plaisirs de Versailles, was most likely written for the king's entertainment on any night of the week. The evening ends like every good party does, with one last dance- the plangent, lugubrious Chaconne from Leclair’s Recreation de Musique Op.8 in g minor. Its final notes are the perfect finish to an evening that started out very simply- a little music, a little conversation.
