Description: A tribute to the popularity of plucked string instruments, which were popular among all levels of society in Paris during the last half of the 18th century, from the aristocracy to middle-class salons. Most of the composers were active in Paris during this time and, being specialists in these types of instruments, you will not have heard of any of them. No texts. Nathalie Pierson (soprano), Artemandoline.
