In their first recording for harmonia mundi, Bertrand Cuiller and the musicians of Le Caravansérail immerse us in the dreamlike world of the London theatre of the 17th century. Incidental music, airs, dances and inventive melodies combining the English tradition and French and Italian innovations are the ingredients that make up the five imaginary tableaux of this reconstruction of the period, illuminated by the voice of the distinguished soprano, Rachel Redmond.

Bertrand Cuiller studied with Christophe Rousset and Pierre Hantaï and was a prizewinner at the Bruges International Harpsichord competition. He has played with such prestigious ensembles as Le Concert Spirituel, Stradivaria, Le Poème Harmonique and La Rêveuse and has recorded for Alpha and Mirare.
