This double album is an invitation to explore the forces of nature, so vividly depicted by the composers at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.
With this stunning (and first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebel’s Les Elements, Jordi Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that authenticity and timbral beauty aren’t mutually exclusive.
New recordings of works by Locke, Vivaldi, Marais, Telemann and Rameau - a splendidly varied and expressively wide-ranging selection - is a welcome addition to the existing landmark recordings made by Savall in this repertoire.
Pellucid engineering complements the live performances perfectly, offering warmth without excessive resonance, and letting the players shine.
