Would you be able to identify the classical music (if it appears to be so) of the first seconds of this French sketch?


This baroque music is Jean-Baptiste Lully's "Chaconne de l'Amour Médecin", a chaconne he wrote in 1665 for Molière's eponymous comédie-ballet.

You can listen to the complete piece on YouTube:

FYI, here is the full story (in French) behind Les Inconnu's song, which ended up being quite expensive for them.

  • Amazing find! How did you manage to find an exotic piece like that (and I LIKE baroque) with such a short sample?

  • @guidot There is no magic :-) With a classic Google search I quickly found the page in French about that song (see the last link in my answer). Credits must go to them, so....
