Jean-Philippe Rameau: Les Surprises de l'Amour

Performer Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Alpha continues its exploration of the baroque repertoire in this recording of a transcription by Hesse of Rameau’s Surprises de l’Amour. These transcriptions (for two viols and harpsichord) cover the entire sound range of the viols. A virtuoso viol player, Hesse was also a pupil of Marin Marais and Forqueray senior, simultaneously. He achieved this feat by resorting to a false name and was exposed during a musical joust organized by the two masters, both vaunting the qualities of an outstanding pupil.
