Notes & Reviews:

Louis-Nicolas Clérambault came from a musical dynasty, and was a formidable violinist and organist. He favored the Italianate style of Corelli, and his music is a unique blend of French and Italian styles -- the latter noticeable in the rhythmic vitality of the music. The harpsichord suites date from 1702. While adhering to the baroque suite of Prelude, Allemende, Courante, Sarabande, Gigue, Clérambault expands the form with additions -- the Prelude is very free in form, and unlike those found in the Bach suites where strict contrapuntalism reigns supreme.
