Two viola da gamba players, two inspired soloists, two major composers of the century of Louis XIV: Marais and Sainte Colombe. What could be more sensually French? When Sainte Colombe published his Concerts à deux violes esgales, he made two almost human voices sing together, their complaints almost religious, and touched the heart with his poetry and perfection. His disciple Marin Marais found new colors in his viol duets, and a more dramatic discourse: the autumn of the Great King's life was immersed in this sumptuous music, so closely linked to the spirit of the French Court. To bring this intimate Versailles back to life, Mathilde Vialle and Myriam Rignol take us into the mysterious harmonies of two violes esgales... until the famous Couplets de Folies!
