Great early/Baroque music

French Baroque music actually falls on the cusp between Renaissance and Baroque music. Anyone interested in either style will enjoy this album immensely. Savall is a superb musician and conductor who has recorded French, Spanish, German, Turkish, Balkan, and many other kinds of music. This collection of pieces written for Louis XIV is full of pomp, yet lively — a perfect evocation of the era.

A French Baroque confection

A gorgeous collection of pieces from the reign of the Sun King! Savall's Le Concert des Nations has a nice incisive sound but still maintains some of the rustic, and colourful character that's needed in French Baroque music. Particular favorite tracks are Marin Marais' 'Charivary' and the Chaconne from 'Alcyone.' I'd say this recording is a must-have for any enthusiast of French Baroque music.
