Paris 1847: The Music of Eugène Jancourt is the first recording entirely devoted to this 19th century French composer. Recognized as a bassoon virtuoso and a great teacher, Jancourt is the author of method books and repertoire that have contributed to the development of the instrument. Bassoonist Mathieu Lussier invites us to discover these rarities with the participation of Camille Roy-Paquette (cello), Sylvain Bergeron (guitar) and Valérie Milot (harp). Most of Jancourt's works on this recording come from his method book published in 1847. According to Mathieu Lussier, "it is at once a manifesto, a method, and a compendium which informs us about all aspects of bassoon playing, but also contains many pages that may be of interest to anyone wishing to learn more about historically informed wind playing in the 19th century."
