Already at the age of five Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre (1665-1729) was a sensation as a musical wunderkind, and Louis XIV encouraged her to further develop her “wonderful talent”. Extraordinary for women at the time, she remained highly esteemed throughout her life as an interpreter, teacher and composer. The Bach Players provide a subtle interpretation of this exquisite music.
