Le Concert Brisé
|Songs of this (Style fantastique) album are not available.|
William Dongois (cornetto), Carsten Lohff (harpsichord, organ), Eric Bellocq (lute, theorbo)
Style fantastique is the ensemble Le Concert Brisé's latest record - lead by William Dongois (cornetto) and composed of six sonatas op. 3 for violin and continuo by Giovanni Pandolfi-Mealli (1620 - ca. 1669). Dongois impressively demonstrates his utter mastery as a cornetto virtuoso: he makes this music sound with a lightness as if it had never been composed for a different instrument.
Aside from William Dongois, there are Carsten Lohff playing the harpsichord and organ, and Éric Bellocq on the lute and theorbo.
The harpsichord played is an original Rückers instrument from 1632.
In distinction to other cornetto recordings, the one at hand is a true live recording. Music, interpretation and sound set the scene for a journey into the metaphysical immensity of music.
