Fantasticus: Sonnerie & other portraits
Rie Kimura (violin)
Robert Smith (viola da gamba)
Guillermo Brachetta (harpsichord)
Following on from the critical success of their debut recording, Fantasticus release their second album for Resonus Classics with a selection of French Baroque chamber works.
Here the trio – Rie Kimura (baroque violin), Robert Smith (viola da gamba) and Guillermo Brachetta (harpsichord) – perform an exquisite programme of French Baroque chamber works focusing on a theme of ‘musical portraits’. The recording includes popular and lesser-known works by composers such as Jean-Philippe Rameau, Marin Marais, François Francoeur, Jean-Marie Leclair, Jacques Duphly and Louis-Antoine Dornel.
