Description: Galliard was a German composer, oboist, flutist and keyboardist active in England in the first half of the 18th century. Published in London in 1711, this collection exhibits an elegant and smooth fusion of styles: from the orderly counterpoint of his youth in Hannover to the virtuosity and brio of the Italian baroque, from the flavor of the English tradition that only occasionally shows through to the nuances of French taste that are evident in several movements. Fabiano Martignago (recorders), Angelica Selmo (harpsichord).
