    Album information

    A powerful performance of French baroque by Rebel and Marais from the popular Palladians. 

    In their first CD with violinist Rudolfo Richter, the Palladian Ensemble play the music of Marin Marais (1656 - 1728) and Jean-Féry Rebel (1666 - 1747). A suite from Les Elemens, an opera by Rebel, forms the centrepiece of the disc. The thunderous dissonance which opens Les Elemens can scarcely be believed to be by the 71 year old Rebel, whose music had been praised for its 'Wisdom, Taste and Tenderness' and its avoidance of the 'Frightening and Monstrous'.
