Who could have imagined that London would become the capital of Italian opera in the early eighteenth century? The 1720s witnessed a feverish demand for music that led many foreign virtuosos to move to the city. Concert-loving Londoners relished the last sonatas in the style of the old master Corelli, the first recorder and flute concertos, and the works of the youthful newcomer Handel . . . Let us admire this lively scene with the musicians of La Rêveuse, in their first recording for harmonia mundi!
Gramophone Magazine November 2020
La Rêveuse bring us a disc of splendid music-making...The theme of the disc makes for a lovely coherence between works... There is enough variety, both timbral and affectual, to keep one in sonic rapture...Yet it is the individual and plentiful moments of beauty that make this album so enthralling.
