Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The early music ensemble Les Grâces, offers a program of music of the French Baroque. Founded in 2008 the ensemble of soprano, viola da gamba, recorder and harpsichord has performed in the U.S. and Europe to critical acclaim.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The performers demonstrate a sensitive understanding of the unique style of French baroque music. If I have one criticism, it is that Lee should have approached the realization of the continuo with the same sensitivity to style as in his performance of the Duphly pieces. I believe any lover of Bach's Coffee Cantata (or any lover of coffee) would want to add this to his collection.
