ELISABETH JACQUET DE LA GUERRE (c.1664-1729): Violin Sonatas Nos. 1-6.
Catalogue Number: 06M018
Reference: RIC 310
Description: At their appearance in 1707, there was nothing like these works anywhere in French music. Unlike those few composers copying Corelli in form and content, Jacquet de la Guerre varies her movements from four to eight, doesn't alternate slow and fast, offers pieces which are like "character pieces" and others of a recitative style and has the bass viol sometimes duet with the violin Les Dominos.
