Biography

La Petite Bande is a Belgian baroque orchestra founded in 1972 by Sigiswald Kuijken at the request of the record company Deutsche Harmonia Mundi in order to record Jean-Baptiste 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. Having initially concentrated mainly on French music, the orchestra's repertoire has expanded over the years to include music by the Italian masters and that of Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrich Händel, Christoph Willibald Gluck, Franz Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
