Playing Forqueray demands complete and absolute devotion to the material. His works are too complex and too difficult technically to interpret them successfully without a preceding period of study extending over several years. Monsieur Marais, the famous, well-regarded court composer, is a different matter. He knew how to supply the king (Ludwig XIV) and the Chapelle Royale with music both good in quality and easy to play. Sarah Perl accompanied by Mira Lange and Niklas Trüstedt plays works by these two different contemporaries.
