Rameau and the Fabulous French Baroque

Christina Day Martinson, violin, Daniel Ryan, basse de violon and cello, Suzanne Strumpf, traverso, Michael Bahmann, harpsichord, and special guest Aaron Engebreth, baritone, gave a superlative concert last night in the Back Bay. Musicians of the Old Post Road are consumate musicians and their concerts are a delight.

Their Telemann & Bodinus Quartets CD is wonderfully melodic. Once again I thank my generous friend for the concert, dinner, and the CD. His enthusiasm for early music is contagious. He said last night that "Rameau was considered to be the French Bach."
