Jean-Baptiste Lully, born Giovanni Battista Lulli (November 28, 1632 – March 22, 1687) was an Italian-born French composer, instrumentalist, and dancer.
Jean-Baptiste spent most of his life working in the court of Louis XIV of France. He is considered the chief master of the French baroque style. Lully disavowed any Italian influence in French music of the period. He became a French subject in 1661.
