Summary of the show:
According to legend, the Motte Ternant castle, located near Mont-Saint-Jean between Auxois and Morvan, is said to have sheltered the love affairs of Henri IV and his beautiful favourite, Gabrielle d'Estrées. Today, only a few vestiges remain, including an imposing round tower that bears her name. The "almost queen", as some people called her, gave three children to the King and died in excruciating pain during the birth of the fourth: poisoning or the work of the Devil?
As André Beuchot tells his astonishing story with humour, you will listen to the Violes d'Éole perform a wide variety of music: Abel, Bach, Boismortier, Campion, Haendel, Marais, Purcell, Vivaldi... and some traditional pieces. But by the way, do you know the recipe for Henri IV's famous poule au pot?
