A man full of fire, genius and vivacity, Louis-Gabriel Guillemain was “the fastest and most extraordinary violinist” at Louis XV’s court. His Livre XVII, Conversations galantes et amusantes consists of six sonatas in four parts – melodically inspired pieces showing a creative and complex approach to rhythm. Guillemain’s music fuses a mastery of the ‘affects’, contrasts and sense of movement characteristic of the Baroque with all the fantasy, delicacy and refinement of the French Rococo art.
