Lucy Skeaping introduces solo keyboard music and trio sonatas by Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, born 350 years ago this year. Hailed in her lifetime as worthy of a seat on Mount Parnassus, de La Guerre's music was frequently enjoyed at the courts of both Louis XIV and Louis XV, but much of her keyboard music was presumed to be lost until it was rediscovered in recent times. Here the distinguished harpsichordist, Béatrice Martin, plays her keyboard suites in the magnificent surroundings of London's Wallace Collection, famous for its 18th-century French paintings and furniture.
