The gambist and conductor Jordi Savall, one of the most famous exponents of early music, has dedicated himself to presenting musical masterpieces from the Renaissance to the Classical period with worldwide success for decades. His programme La Nuit des trois Rois - The Night of the Three Kings - is a musical homage to the three great French kings Louis XIII, XIV and XV, during whose reign not only the unique architecture of the palace complex of Versailles was created, but also performances of concerts, ballets, plays and operas flourished at court.
