Notes & Reviews:

Notes are in French for this third CD recorded by the Nice Baroque Ensemble. Taken from a live concert that celebrated the 20th anniversary of the ensemble, the performances are on period instruments.

"When I imagine what most early 18th century German string players must have sounded like, I think of a warm, gently, gutty sound from the plain gut strings, very little or no vibrato (too much effort), much attention paid to articulation, but little attention paid to unanimity of ensemble. I imagine a style of playing totally lacking the intensity and polish we are accustomed to from the 20th Century...That is exactly what I hear on this disc by these period-performance practitioners from the south of France...If you are looking for that kind of sound, this is probably for you."-American Record Guide
