CD: Viola da gamba trio sonata – L.-G. Guillemain, op.12 no.2

April 20, 2009

The Concert Spirituel: Anet, Guillemain, Mouret, Buffardin. The Perfection of Music, masterpieces of the French baroque ser. ABC Classics, 4766182

Tracks 13-16, 13’59”. Louis-Gabriel Guillemain (1705-1770). Sonata for transverse flute, violin, bass viol and basso continuo in B minor, op.12 no.2.

David Tunley’s liner notes indicate that the key lies in the sub-title “…ou conversations galantes et amusantes entre un flute…” in terms of style and looks forward to the string quartet in terms of composition. Think a Devienne flute piece.

No score available to my knowledge.
