Delalande: Symphonies pour les Soupers du Roy (Selections)
Wonderful "Table" music by a lesser known composer
R. Rockwell | Brooklyn, NY USA | 10/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The set of music was actually meant to be played before the king when he was enjoying his public dinner. These baroque symphonies are arranged ino the typical dance forms but Delalande, despite the bombast that was typical of the French Baroque music, enlivens and humanizes the pieces.
It is hard to believe that Delalande is so unknown. This music is so special that it really belongs in all classical music collection. Even though there is no other disc available, I could not imagine a better performance than this."
