In putting together this programme, the ensemble L’Escadron Volant de la Reine (which takes its curious name from that of a group of ladies-in-waiting for Catherine de’ Medici) has taken Geminiani’s life itself as the main argument, from his youth in Italy to the end of his life in Dublin, with ample stopovers in Paris and London. When we examine our protagonist’s biography, we discover an eccentric, flamboyant character, just like his music. Il Furibondo, as his students used to call him – the Enraged or the Fulminating, some nickname indeed! – has never ceased to amaze. L’Escadron did not want to string together the usual and slightly pedestrian album offering five or six Concerti, but instead took a peek into the composer’s repertoire to build from scratch a framework with pieces in all the styles and genres which Geminiani explored: the Galant Style; the Dance; the Fugue; the traditional Irish song; the Aria; the Recitation; the Tempest; or the English-style Ground Bass… Some further composers appear in this musical biography: Haendel, whom Geminiani admired for his vocal works (hence an instrumental version of one of Haendel’s most famous arias, Lascia ; Avison, an English contemporary; and finally, Corelli, Il Furibondo’s own teacher. By turns, each member of the Escadron takes the floor as a soloist and puts forward his or her character to portray the different aspects of Geminiani’s fascinating life.
