Outstanding trumpet player Gabriele Cassone and harpsichordist Antonio Frigé are the fine interpreters of these works, full of brio and of savoury descriptive writing à la français. The use of the trumpet reveals itself very suitable for some pieces, particularly those of the Cinquième Concert, entitled La Guerre (hence the CD title), whose martial features indeed seem to call for such an instrument. The interpretation of the "Pian & Forte" ensemble, with its full and brilliant sound produced by six Baroque trumpets, strings and timpani, contributes to attain the martial spirit of these late 17th-century compositions.       Dynamic on sale
