Program Notes

The Suite of Symphonies for brass, strings & timpani No. 1 (Suite De Symphonies, Première Suite de Symphonies) was written by Jean-Joseph Mouret, in the Baroque era of music. The first movement of this piece, the Rondeau, is widely known and commonly used in weddings, and notably on the PBS program Masterpiece. Mouret composed this piece in the French Baroque style in 1729, while being the director for the Concert Spirituel, which was one of the first concert series known in existence.
