“Doux Rossignols” — 18th century French baroque music

Titanic Records is pleased to announce the release of “ ‘Doux Rossignols’ 18th century French Baroque Music.”. This CD offers a selection from French baroque repertory from the first half of the 18th century. Well-known compositions of Couperin and Leclair alternate with unknown works by Philidor and Dollé. What surprises is the variety in strength: solo sonatas for both voice-flute and gamba, trio sonatas, a harpsichord solo and a duet for two voice-flutes. It is remarkable that the harpsichordist of this ensemble, Pieter-Jan Belder, is a recorder-player as well. He is a much sought-after harpsichordist and forte pianist and has recorded a large number of CDs, including the complete works of Corelli and the Tafelmusik by Telemann with his own Ensemble Amphion. In addition, he is recording the complete harpsichord sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti. As a soloist he can be heard in the Dixhuitième Ordre for harpsichord solo by François Couperin. The gamba player Johannes Boer performs an unknown solo sonata by Jean-Marie Leclair. This baroque ensemble plays ardently and stylishly on very fine instruments.
