When the ensemble Amarillis focuses on Handel, the musicians reinvent the genre of the baroque suite. They take advantage of their variable geometry formation to concoct a joyous musical ballet in homage to the most Italian of the English composers. No voice here, and yet what lyricism in these pages! Thanks to transcriptions that constantly renew the instrumentation of the program, the performers, led by Héloïse Gaillard (flute) and Violaine Cochard (harpsichord), emphasize the colours of this contrasting and special anthology of Handels Suites and Trio Sonatas.
