MARAIS Les Folies d’Espagne Robert Stallman (fl); Edwin Swanborn (hpd); Karl Bennion (vc) BOGNER’S CAFÉ BOCA–104 (51:24)



So here is a case where Robert Stallman, an irrepressible transcriber, is not putting old and venerable wines in new and revealing bottles, but paying homage to both major and minor figures of the French Baroque. The recording is sweet and airy, and his two accompanying musicians are decidedly on the same page with him. This gracious music is alternately thrilling and full of exquisite longing—feelings that we, if we are/were so lucky, have felt in our own lives. His playing has its customary immediacy and seduces us, despite the distractions around us, into finally living in the moment—a moment that, given the evidence here, proves to be a timeless one.
