  AM 028 La Belle Dance  

Indulge in an hour of catchy dances and music for reflection and meditation in the company of three of Louis XIV favourite composers. Traversoplayer Sigrid Egtvedt and lutenist Vegard Lund are among Scandinavia's most prominent performers in the field of early music and give the listener a journey into the French baroque sound world, performed on historical instruments. Louis XIV gave birth to a cultural and musical heritage that still fascinates people all over the world. Parts of later music story would be unthinkable without all the artistic creativity that unfolded under the so-called Sun king. This recording has focused on three composers, all associated with Louis XIV and Versailles: Robert de Visée (c 1650-1732?), Jacques-Martin Hotteterre (with the nickname Le Romain; 1674 -1763) and François Couperin (with the nickname "Le Grand"; 1668-1733).

Sigrid Egtved is specialized in historic flutes and has been a regular flutist in the orchestra Barokkanerne for more than 10 years, and has performed regularly with other baroque orchestras in Norway (Trondheim Barokk, Oslo Barok­korkester, Barokksolistene, a o).

Vegard Lund lute, guitar and other historical instruments, is one af the most active musicians in the field of early music in Norway. He works regularly with ensembles such as Barokkanerne and The New Dutch Academy, in addition to work as a soloist and continuo play­er with the Norwegian Chamber Or­chestra, the Norwegian National Opera and others.
