During this galant festival edition Jordi Savall and his orchestra present imposing soundscapes that explore the boundaries of the Baroque and then... go beyond them. Listen to Jean-Féry Rebel, who  as an eight-year-old drew the attention of the great Lully. In his famous ballet Les Élémens Rebel makes earth, fire and air fight with chaos. It is one of Rebel's last compositions: it is 1737 and the composer is now over 70. But with the shocking opening chord that depicts chaos, he heralds a new chapter in musical history.  
 
Telemann has been called the father of galant music. In his Hamburger Ebb' und Fluth, seas and rivers form the backdrop for enticing mermaids, swooning sea gods and raging waves. With Gluck we go a step further. In his revolutionary ballet Don Juan ou le festin de Pierre the fire flares up during the descent into the underworld. From now on music will never be the same.
