Joined by the renowned Dutch player Menno van Delft – and performed on two incredible French-style instruments by harpsichord builder Titus Crijnen – the duo present a programme of French Baroque works from François Couperin (La Paix du Parnasse), Gaspard Le Roux (Suite in F major) & Jean-Philippe Rameau. The centre-piece of the disc is a new arrangement by Brachetta of twenty movements from Rameau's comic opera masterpiece Platee.
