Pieces for harpsichord Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville (1711 - 1772)

“Even today, these Opus 3 Sonatas – which have all the elegance of a tale by Diderot, a Boucher painting, or a rococo “folly” on the outskirts of Paris – continue to bear valuable witness to the taste of an artistically demanding and appreciative public, which was indeed the envy and admiration of most of the courts of Europe.”

Christophe Rousset
