FolieS ! (Thierry Huillet creation)
Price : 12 €
Folias have already been the subject of a great many recordings and there is a vaste repertoire dedicated to this theme. In any case, it seems to us that it would be of interest to offer a programme based on this evergreen "standard," whose sucess may unabashedly be compared with that enjoyed by Twentieth Century blues. This gives us a good excuse to express unbriedled imagination and conviviality. The simple project wich spurred us on for this CD was to create a selection of four versions, alternated by recorder pieces, all in a festive, sharing spirit.
Jean-Marc Andrieu, recorder

Sonate en trio en Fa majeur n° 7 de Telemann
