Notes & Reviews:

Despite stylistic differences, which are largely attributable to their difference in age, d'Anglebert and Hotteterre nevertheless have quite a lot in common. Both were active at the court of Louis XIV, obtaining the title of Musicien de la Chambre du Roi, and both were substantially influenced by Jean-Baptiste Lully, the musician who is universally considered the creator of a cultural model for French music that ultimately prevailed over the Italian model. Jacques-Martin Hotteterre was the celebrated recorder virtuoso-composer of his day, no less distinguished than Paganini and Liszt would be in their own contexts. Hotteterre's gift was for toning down and understating the differences between the French and Italian idioms, skillfully adapting the Italian models to suit his own cultural setting at the royal court in and around Paris, thereby imbuing them with new forms whose original structures are fully integrated into the composition. A few decades older than Hotteterre, Jean-Henry d'Anglebert adhered to the classic model of 17th-century French Baroque music, his works for harpsichord representing a significant example of the style at its maturity. These transcriptions of works by the master Lully are remarkably dense, not least because the one keyboard has to embrace and express the five parts of Lully's orchestral ensemble. But they are also full of ornamentation, which was a feature of all d'Anglebert's music. Les Eléments is a dynamic chamber ensemble fully in tune with modern scholarship and historically informed performance values. This is its second recording. Other information: - Booklet includes notes on the music by Basilio Timpanaro- "A peaceful and serene listening experience." (Musica on the first CD of Les Eléments, of music by A. Scarlatti)

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Stylishly played, creating a revealing window into Louis XIV's court.

MusicWeb International, 2nd May 2014
The ensemble of Italian musicians here has a very good feeling for the features of the sonatas. Also the considerable contrasts between the various movements are perfectly conveyed.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Here is elegant music, elegantly played, giving a good cross-section of the music from the French court of the 18th Century. There are six sonatas from Hotteterre and five Lully transcriptions for solo harpsichord from Anglebert. The sound is excellent.
