This is the finest recorded set of historically-informed Baroque period recitals that I have ever encountered, for its selection of works, their arrangement within each program and across the series, and for the instrumentation and the simply stunning performances. © Marvin J.

Review By Lance Hulme,Early Music America,June 2012

This delightful CD delivers exactly what it promises: a charming evening of music written to be performed at the courts of Louis XIV and XV.

This recording begins with ballet music by Jean-Baptist Lully and continues with works by younger composers including François Couperin, marin Marais, Jean-Marie Ledair, Jean-Féry Rebel, and Jean-Phillipe Rameau. All the choices are excellent and showcase superb artistry, but the Marais stands out as compositionally extravagant and technically exciting: John Mark Rozendaal’s virtuosity shines here. Rameau’s audacious and raucous Quatrièmene Concert is the high point of the recording, demonstrating Trio Settocento’s expertise as an ensemble


Review By David Vernier,,December 2011

…the general public doesn’t get to hear many live performances of this music…so when we do get a recording, it’s gratifying that, as it is here, it’s done with such respect for the clever compositional devices, pointedly emotional expressions, and the special nuances of the various dances and sonata movements. Ornaments? Yes, scads of them; but they aren’t gratuitous frills. These three players know how to integrate them into the melodic and harmonic context as they should be, so they’re an enhancement rather than a distraction.
