Description: The origin and development of the pardessus de viole — known in France as "the woman's violin" — coincided with the increasing prominence of the violin in French instrumental fashion. Most of the works performed here are unpublished. At the time of their composition, these pieces catered to a large public, responding to widespread demand for refined entertainment. They are without exception charming, playful, luminous and exquisitely elegant Mélisande Corriveau (pardessus de viole), Eric Milnes (harpsichord).
