This is Volume 1 of Tempesta di Mare’s two-disc project of late seventeenth century French instrumental music. Suites of music were often compiled from stage works that were performed at the time and presented in the form of instrumental excerpts and dances. These suites contain some of the most tuneful, appealing and striking music of the period with works by Lully, Marais and Rebel.

-----

The group seem genuinely at home in the 18-th century music ... The tempos are well chosen – dignified in the overtures and marches, lilting and swaggering in the airs and dances – and command of dynamics and ornamentation are superb throughout.

– Gramophone [April 2015]
