Performer Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This historically informed performance is recorded by Ensemble Amarilli, and is an exploration into the recreational music of the French nobility in Baroque and Rococo times. Corresponding to customary chamber music, the ensemble uses recorders, flutes, voices, viola da gamba, and harpsichord in various structures. The majority of these works were written by composers who lived under Louis XIV (the Sun King), and Louis XV.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Expect swung or dotted short notes in French style and a bounty of joy from Rameau. Nearly all the selections are excerpts from multi- movement works, so the concept for this program is a musical picnic. It concludes with a large Chaconne and Passepied by Leclair, from a suite that gives this release its title. The performers are consistently superb, whatever they might play or sing. I'm sure if you purchase this release you'll want to enjoy it more than once.
