Extra ordinary fine in music and execution. I really enjoyed what I heard. such a perfectly matching ensemble making music on such a high level is a treat any time. Boismortier wrote superb solo parts in these sonatas, especially for the bassoon, and gave the harpsichord also a lot to do. Both cello players on this disc are a marvel. Together they had a lot of fun between them, and this you can hear. The experience of all musicians involved pay huge dividends. There is a harmony that is beguiling. No faults can be found here.
The recording is almost state of the art. The booklet for a change with Ligia is well written and all is translated into English, a relief, after all those Ligia discs that are mostly in French.
