Catalogue Number: 08W023
Description: Devienne devoted a large proportion of his compositions, in several different forms, to the two instruments of which he was a virtuoso exponent - the flute and the bassoon. The program presents trios which combine the violin and the cello with the two wind instruments in turn. These works possess all the charm of the galant aesthetic that developed in the late eighteenth century, along with a certain penchant for virtuosity. Le Petit Trianon.
