This disc is marvelous! I have always enjoyed Rameau's music, but the performance captured here is top notch. The harpsichord is bright and spritely, and Olivier Fortin plays it with obvious joie de vivre - particularly in the Troisieme Concert pieces. Anne Thivierge's flute makes a wonderful companion to this jaunty keyboard, as does Sophie Gent's Violin. The Basse Viole, played by Melisande Corriveau, possesses a warm voice with good quality of tone, and blends very very well with the other members of this young ensemble. In fact, the quality of the recording as a whole is extremely well balanced, and the dialogue between the various instruments is a pleasure to listen to. This group also has a sensitive and somber side, as evidenced in the Deuxieme Concert, particularly in the "1er Menuet et 2e Menuet". And a warm and intellectual interpretation of the Permier Concert is a feast for both the mind and the ears. This is the kind of music making that makes the listener want to get up and learn how to Minuet if he/she doesn't already know. Delightful!
