France (1710-1740)


Amarillis returns to its original purely instrumental formation for a programme of trios: after Italy and England, this time they choose France and the chamber music of Rameau, Philidor, Hotteterre, De la Barre, Barrière and Boismortier.

What the press says

Le Monde de la Musique { juin 2000 }
"Here we find the best of French music from the first half of the seventeenth century, including pieces for oboe by Pierre Danican Philidor, for flute and cello by Jean Barrière, and for harpsichord by Jean-Philippe Rameau. The three young ladies of Amarillis and Anne-Marie Lasla (bass viol) do full justice to these works."
Jean Cossetto { août 2000 }
"Amarillis – Héloïse Gaillard, Baroque oboe and recorder, her sister Ophélie Gaillard, cello, and Violaine Cochard, harpsichord – perform some delightful pieces from the end of the Grand Siècle and the Age of Enlightenment. Violaine Cochard's playing is elegant, with a tasteful use of ornamentation."
