"This book brings together 23 contributions relating to string orchestras, but also to strings in orchestras, under the reign of Louis XIV. With the center, Versailles practices: the tyrant had paid little attention to the expense to impress the world and erect to the and his royalty, in fact already declining and for this reason, an outstanding monument, including music. Versailles was a reference - certainly partly phantasmagoric - to the princes of the whole earth, even to those who never showed their majesty or the tip of their noses. ...

... It is a work of great scholarship, studies are strictly factual, technical and archival, it offers a solid documentation of authority to anyone interested in the music of the seventeenth century in general and of course those who use the strings in particular." ...
