Description: As with most issues in this series, this one also concentrates on the period between 1695 and 1739 when the old French suite-style of composition was being overtaken by les goûts réunis, the mixing of Italian sonata style with the existing French styles. Philidor represents the old, thoroughly French suite, Rebel moves beyond the trio sonata with two treble instruments, Boismortier offers both a duo and a trio sonata and Guillemain dispenses with the basso continuo entirely. Ensemble Battistin.
