Notes & Reviews:
Between 1975 and 1983, Jordi Savall recorded fi ve albums featuring the most beautiful pieces from each of the five Books of Pieces for the Viol composed by Marin Marais between 1686 and 1725. A silence of nearly 250 years came to an end. A repertoire — and even better, an instrument — returned from oblivion. The memory of a composer had never been so tightly linked to the performing art of a musician. Thirtyfi ve years after the beginning of this history-making enterprise, the fi ve original Astrée albums are now offered with remastered sound that fully rewards the genius of both Marin Marais and Jordi Savall. Luxuriously documented — as always with Alia Vox — this anthology is a must have for any Baroque music lover.
