Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Philidor began serving King Louis XV at an early age and became thoroughly acquainted with the practical and theoretical sides of music at Versailles. The six quartets entitled L'art de la modulation are among the relatively limited number of quartet for three concertizing upper voices and basso continuo published in Paris during the years of the ancient régime.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Two of the quartets are played on baroque oboe by Hans-Peter Westermann, and the rest are played on baroque flute by Karl Kaiser. Camerata Koln is a period instrument group established in 1979 at the Cologne Conservatory. The performers are very good, the intonation is exact, and the playing is stylish. Westermann is the best baroque oboist I've heard. If you like gentle, mid-18th Century French writing, you'll find this chamber music satisfying.
