Description
Harpsichordist and violinist Charles Dieupart (c. 1670–c. 1740) spent most of his working life in London, which during his prime was one of the most thriving music centers in Europe. The highly original "Six Suittes de Clavessin divisées"—from which this disc's three overtures are taken—spanned both the flourishing French style and the contrapuntal German style, and later influenced J.S. Bach. The ensemble Les Buffardins also performs the Sonatas in E Minor (HWV 359b), G (HWV 363b), and B Minor (HWV 367b) by G.F. Handel, who needs no introduction.

"[Dieupart] offered several options: the suites could be played on the harpsichord alone, or with a treble instrument. Dieupart favoured the recorder … but he also took care to write his suites in such a way that they could be played by the transverse flute, becoming more and more fashionable…. The tempi are always spot on, and the players are not afraid to play fast movements really fast. They also show a strong sense of rhythm, which makes one feel the dance rhythms very clearly…. Outstanding performances of first-rate music."—Musica Dei Donum
