Louis-Nicolas Clérambault: Sonata in G Major “La Félicité” By The Apothéose Ensemble

6 min
Louis-Nicolas Clérambault: Sonata in G Major “La Félicité” By The Apothéose Ensemble

A jolly piece in continuo form

French Renaissance composer Louis-Nicolas Clérambault came from a very musical family. His brother and father also were musicians, though he became distinguished from them, becoming referred to as “the great” Clérambault. A a boisterous piece for harpsichord, strings and flute, Clérambault’s work is a comprehensive work which rarely allows breathing breaks to the performers, who are constantly weaving in and out of each other. Let this work take your breath away.
