Notes & Reviews:

Jean Baptiste Joseph Masse was a French composer and violoncellist in the court of Louis XV. He published five volumes of sonatas. Books I, II and V are for two cellos and basso continuo. Masse indicates that they may be played by bassoons, viols or violins. The Masse sonatas are some of the first virtuoso pieces written for cello and basso continuo. They are highly varied sonatas, ranging from elegant to rustic, and very pleasing to hear. Highly recommended. [Vol. 2 is DRN 93223]
