Catalog: COV91928


The chamber music of Nicolas Clérambault (1676-1749) is characterized by expressivity, thematic inventiveness and a discreetly skillful way of composition. As in the previous production of the ensemble The Bach Players with compositions by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (COV 91815), this album contains little known works from the famous library of the composer and music writer Sébastien de Brossard (1655-1730), which were recorded here for the first time on historical instruments. With their lucid, performance-practically sound interpretation, the musicians manage to give the music an appealing freshness. The Bach Players is a group of singers and players known for their engaging programmes of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music. According to needs, the ensemble varies in size from three to twenty-five musicians. In their concerts The Bach Players make links between composers, national styles, and developments in music – to provide a wider context in which to present the famous composers of the time. They play on original instruments, and all vocal music is sung in its original language.
