Fatale flame: music from 18th century France

Solomon, A. (2000) Fatale flame: music from 18th century France. [Audio]

Abstract

Music by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, Jacques Moral, Jacques-Christophe Naudot, Jean-Marie Leclair and Jean-Phillppe Rameau, performed by period instrument ensemble Florilegium with Julia Gooding (soprano). While the music offered in this recording spans only thirty-two years, it best exemplifies the development of French musical style and taste in the eighteenth century. By the middle of the century the unification of both the Italian and French styles of music composition termed by Franois Couperin as les gots-runis had been realised. This disc of chamber music modestly charts the journey through this change from Montclair and Morel through Leclair and Naudot to Rameau.
