La Petite Bande Sigiswald Kuijken
La Petite Bande was founded in 1972 by Sigiswald Kuijken at the request of the record company Harmonia Mundi (Germany) in order to record Lully’s Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, under the direction of Gustav Leonhardt. The orchestra takes its name and constitution from Lully’s own orchestra at the court of Louis XIV. All its members are internationally renowned specialists in the early music field. On this new release, the ensemble has chosen a selection of Mozart operas, including Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Cosi fan Tutti.
