La Dubreuil

Forqueray: La Dubreül

A famous epithet of the early 18th century contrasted Marais with his arch-rival Antoine Forqueray, stating that Marais played as much like an angel as Forqueray played like the devil. The comparison is a useful one, but oversimplifies the musical characters of both composers. In this piece by Forqueray you can hear Forqueray both in his demonic, almost Paganinian pose, as in La Leclair, a gigue-like character piece evoking the Italian-influenced violinist and composer.
