Fanfares Royales: Music by Charpentier, Lulluy, Delalande and Francœur
KHCD-2013-016DL (STEREO) - Fanfares Royales: Music by Charpentier, Lulluy, Delalande and Francœur - Adolf Scherbaum, 1st Trumpet; Stanislav Simek, 2nd Trumpet; Paul Kuentz Chamber Orchestra conducted by Paul Kuentz - A fine collection of fanfares and celebratory music, including a pastiche of other composers work woven into a symphony of sorts by Francœur. It's all quite enjoyable, with a (very) slight nod to early music practice, performances more into the spirit of the music rather than the last word in every-note-in-place. Thanks to Harvey Greisman in lending the DGG LP for transcription. Cover, tray and disc art are included in the download.
