Banishing the troubles of night, Louis XIV danced in the Sun King costume that would henceforth be forever associated with him. This unmissable world première recording presents a reconstruction of the work created by {{b}}Sébastien Daucé{{/b}} that includes music by Jean de Cambefort, Antoine Boesset, Louis Constantin, Michel Lambert, Francesco Cavalli and Luigi Rossi.{{/span}}{{/p}}{{p}} {{/p}}

{{p}}{{b}}A new world{{/b}}{{/p}}{{p}}{{b}}{{/b}}{{br /}}This second volume of the complete recording of the concertos and trios of Schumann shows just how badly we needed an interpretation that respects the subtleties and the transparency of Schumann’s writing. Here is a different stylistic approach to one of the finest concertos in the repertory, which will undoubtedly open the way to the rediscovery of music as poetic as it is moving.{{/p}}
