About

Jacques‐Martin Hotteterre was a virtuoso recorder player at the court of Louis XIV the Sun King, in the distinguished position of Musicien de la Chambre du Roi. He was a famous composer as well, mainly for his own instrument, for which he wrote numerous works in which he integrated Italian elements, such as instrumental brilliance and prevalence for longer melodic lines, in the courtly French style of dance forms and lavish ornamentation.

D’Anglebert was a harpsichord player of importance, also employed at the court of Louis XIV. He transcribed orchestral suites by Lully, an instrumental 'tour de force', reducing the 5 parts of the orchestral writing for one player.

The ensemble Les Eléments has been well bred in the historically informed performance practice, and show great skill, virtuosity, charm and feeling for the style.
