Synopsis: Ricercar present a second recording devoted to the composer who can rightly be considered the 'father of the symphony in France', Francois Joseph Gossec. These 3 Symphonies op.8 proclaim their modernity through their use of clarinets and of a Minuet and Trio, rare in Paris at that time. Gossec, born in Belgium, also mastered the styles of his adopted land - the ballets in his trag die lyrique Sabinus can be placed directly in the orchestral tradition of JP Rameau. Guy Van Waas conducts Les Agremens.
