Notes and Editorial Reviews

French Baroque music centers about the imposing figure of the absolute monarch Louis XIV whose creation over a reign exceeding 60 years of an unrivalled court led to an astonishing flowering of the arts. The three composers represented here are from the generation after Lully and their distinctive style is re-produced with great skill and feeling for the particulars of the period by the pioneering Ensemble Concentus Musicus Wien lead from the Tenor Viol da Gamba by Nikolaus Harnoncourt.
