Maxence Larrieu Instrumental Quartet

Maxence Larrieu Instrumental Quartet
The Maxence Larrieu Instrumental Quartet: Maxence Larrieu, flute; Anne-Marie Beckensteiner, harpsichord; Bernard Fonteny, cello; Jacques Chambon, oboe. The quartet made their concert debut on 1 February 1963 at Salle Gaveau in Paris.

"The Maxence Larrieu Instrumental Quartet gives a fine example of the exceptional instrumental and stylistic level achieved by the best of the young French musicians. Unbeatable on the level of perfection of execution, perfectly aware of the specific problems of this music called Baroque, they are able to heighten the originality of their programmes of early music by fruitful explorations in European libraries."
