Notes and Editorial Reviews

This boxed set, featuring harpsichordist Michèle Dévérité, violinist Ryo Terakado and gambist Kaori Uemura, presents the complete surviving works of French composer Antoine Forqueray and his son, Jean-Baptiste. Jean-Baptiste published his own works for viola de gamba in 1747. Although his father wrote three hundred compositions, the thirty-two pieces contained in his son's edition are all that survive today. The set is augmented by a bonus disc of musical tributes from famous (and not so famous) composers of their day.
