Its fifteen individual albums outline an exciting panorama of musical Europe during that period, an inspired heritage performed by the finest soloists and ensembles: Vivaldi’s Gloria by Le Concert Spirituel and Herve Niquet and his Four Seasons by Gli Incogniti and Amandine Beyer; Bach’s B minor Mass by Pygmalion and Raphaël Pichon, the Solo Cello Suites by Bruno Cocset, the Brandenburg Concertos by Cafe Zimmermann and the Goldberg Variations by Celine Frisch; Charpentier’s Te Deum by Le Poème Harmonique and Vincent Dumestre; Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas by MusicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis; Rameau harpsichord pieces by Blandine Rannou; Albinoni sonatas by Ensemble 415 and Chiara Banchini; and much else. This is, no doubt, a veritable treasure trove containing the indispensable works of the Baroque by today’s leading artists.
