Délices de France

This programme performed by Cordevento offers exquisite little pearls taken from the French Baroque. In the stylistic development of the Baroque, France played a very specific role due to Louis XIV, also known as the Sun King. Even the instruments used by Cordevento had undergone a major development in France. The three-part recorder as we know it today was invented and perfected by the Hotteterre family. The Baroque guitar was so popular that even the Sun King was a talented player. And the French harpsichord repertoire, including the works of Jean-Henri d’Anglebrert, for example, is of the highest conceivable level.

Listen to the stunning subtleties of exciting Baroque dances and limitless ornamentation!
