I enjoyed this CD, it has been, for me, an enjoyable introduction to French baroque guitar music. I find Gordon Ferries playing clear and expressive.
It has 41 tracks, some as part of suites, and covers a range of French baroque composers. I found that I needed to listen to it a number of times before I started to fully appreciate the music. But then, this style of music was new to me.
The styles and ideas of the different composers included on this CD makes for fascinating listening.
The CD comes with comprehensive and interesting notes by Gordon Ferries himself.
If you generally like baroque guitar music and also Gordon Ferries' playing, you will most probably be interested in two Spanish baroque guitar CDs by him. These are:
'Marionas'. Music by Francisco Guerau, on Delphian DCD34046.
'La Preciosa'. Music by Gaspar Sanz on Delphian DCD34036.
Both of these are full of lovely, fascinating tunes in the baroque Spanish style. Both come with comprehensive music notes by Gordon Ferries.
