5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent disc in a fine series, 2 Nov 2013
Sid Nuncius (London) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Trio Sonata in C17th France (Audio CD)
I have been gradually accumulating London Baroque's Trio Sonata series (up to eight volumes so far), and have enjoyed every one of them. London Baroque are a superb quartet who have been making excellent recordings for over 30 years now and I think this series is among their best work. They play with effortless virtuosity, an obvious deep understanding of the music and a real delight in it, and a wonderful empathy with each other. It's exemplary chamber playing which really brings these pieces to life.

This disc, recorded in 2004, features sonatas by Lully, both Couperins (Louis and Francois), Marais and Rebel along with the somewhat less well-known Clérambault, le Roux and Geoffroy. They are all very good and I really enjoy hearing more obscure music mixed in with better-known stuff. There is a wide variety of moods, all beautifully brought out by the performances, and the disc is a pleasure from beginning to end.

The sound quality and balance by BIS is excellent and the presentation and notes are very good too. I warmly recommend this, along with all the others in this series. It is a genuine treat.
