Description: Published in 1708 by this famous maker of wind instruments and composer, these are suites of five to seven pieces in the traditional French style with prelude and gigue enclosing various dance movements. Most of these have titles, many referring to specific patrons, as in Couperin's harpsichord suites. Hotteterre varies meter, color, sound and dance forms to provide the epitome of the current French gout. Camerata Köln.
