"...thanks to all the violists, musicians and musicologists who have brought his vast, wonderful legacy to life in our own day, Marin Marais and the viola da gamba are no longer strangers to the world of music. However, I would also like to emphasize the exceptional contribution made by the remarkable film
Tous les matins du monde, the soundtrack of which I had the responsibility and honour to perform...the film enabled millions of people all over the world to discover and experience this music, which until that time had been the privilege of a very few.
Now (thirty years after that
original recording in 1977), I have decided to return to the extraordinary
"Suitte d'un goût étranger" and record it in its entirety, with all its 33 pieces, in the conviction that it is here that we find the true essence and the fullest expression of the art of Marin Marais."
-- Jordi Savall
