Paolo Pandolfo is no doubt one of Glossa’s key artists. Still on the label since he joined it in 1995, this recording of a selection of works by Marin Marais was a milestone in his career. Rarely has this repertoire been played with such an energy and attention to detail, with such a magic in all its many special moments. An all-star setup including Thomas Boysen, Mitzi Meyerson and Pedro Estevan tells us about the labyrinth at Versailles, the bells of Paris or a painful surgery. Among the many unforgettable moments are Pandolfo’s reading of the Tombeau pour Marais le Cadet and the Chaconne.
