Hi-Res Booklet
A contemporary of Sammartini, Blavet, Gluck and C. P. E. Bach, Louis-Gabriel Guillemain (1705-1770) knew the cruel fate of many composers: famous in life, forgotten post-mortem. A "musician ordinaire" in the court of Louis XV with a salary to match, he made a great name for himself as a virtuoso violinist and composer. But alas, he also developed a reputation for extravagant tastes, and even though he was rich and protected by the court, he soon found himself ruined, driven to alcoholism and finally suicide. His work (or at least that which has survived in published form to our times) only runs to 18 works, all of them instrumental, stretching from 1734 to 1762; a regular at the Concerts Spirituels, he developed a considerable reputation as a symphonist, although his timidity seems to have kept him from the stage. The Six Sonatas in Quartet Op. 12, were published in Paris in 1743. According to the preface, it is a collection of "Amusing and Amorous Conversations between a Transverse Flute, a Bass Viol and Basso Continuo"; the style is not without its nods to the Italian fashions then very much in vogue: hardly surprising, given that Guilleman crossed the Alps several times in order to get to know Italian music better. The Fantasticus ensemble plays expertly on period instruments – who, after all would dare play the works of "minor" baroque composers on modern instruments? – with plenty of fantasy and contrasting moods. © SM/Qobuz
