Concerto : Das Magazin für Alte Musik : Murmurs, rustles, songs, radiations, vibrations, whispers (...) Esther Labourdette, Sylvain Manet and Jérémie Couleau are confident soloists with their own character, together in good harmony, remaining clear on their lines, but also flexible and of course on the text. Christophe Deslignes plays the organetto not only as a reliable accompaniment, but also as a solo instrument without limits of expressiveness.
