Catalogue Number: 10O031
Reference: ACD2 2583
Description: This French-Canadian bassoonist finishes his three-disc Devienne series with first recordings of early, two-movement (both fast) trios which, as Lussier notes, are kind of like practice pieces for the deeper-textured, mature bassoon quartets of the composer's Op. 73. Mathieu Lussier (bassoon), Pascale Giguère (violin), Benoit Loiselle (cello), Jean-Louis Blouin (viola - Visitandines).
