L’ange Marais

ATMA (ACD 2 2374)
Marin Marais’ two suites for three viols (quatrième livre)

“Viola da gambists Susie Napper and Margaret Little (who form the core of the ensemble), joined by legendary veteran of the instrument Wieland Kuijken, here serve the composer well, delivering impeccably stylish performances that take full advantage of Marais’ diverse, abundant palette of sonorities that lace his many richly chromatic passages. (…) All told, this is an outstanding addition to the Marais discography and very highly recommended.”
John Greene, Classics Today, November 2006.

Wieland Kuijken, Susie Napper & Margaret Little, violas da gamba
Nigel North, theorbo
Eric Milnes, harpsichord.
