LES DEFIS DE MONSIEUR FORQUERAY Works by Corelli, Mascitti, Leclair. Lucile Boulanger, Pierre Gallon, Claire Gautrot-Gobillard, Romain Falik. Harmonia Mundi
‘Les Défis de Monsieur Forqueray’
In her debut recording for harmonia mundi, Lucile Boulanger explores the facets
of Antoine Forqueray’s career as a virtuoso instrumentalist: adept in
a wide range of Italian repertoire and skilled at transcribing works originally
intended for the violin, he could try it on for size, as it were, before settling
on a different medium.
With the viola da gamba, he extended the technique of playing it far beyond the norm, confronting the performer with fiendishly difficult challenges… which have been met brilliantly by the hugely talented foursome heard here.
