ΜΜΜΔ’s signature massive low end establishes a gigantesque basso continuo for ALEM’s keyboard extravaganzas to sit comfortably on. Apart from MMMΔ’s usual custom-made equipment different period keyboard instruments were used during the recording: clavichord for the Αdagio, harpsichord and baroque timpani for the Sarabande and portable organ for the Air.
In ‘’L’âge de l’absolutisme” an enigmatic manifesto is shaped: sparse evidence of ΜΜΜΔ’s 12-year path from dissonance to harmony. With the help of ALEM’s virtuosic escapades the sound walks a tightrope between strict rule and freedom, majestic grandeur and modest means.
Above all ‘’L’âge de l’absolutisme” is baroque music like you’ve never heard.
