Description

Award-winning baroque violinist Alana Youssefian and her ensemble Le Bien-Aimé debut on AVIE showcasing the uplifting symphonies and virtuosic sonatas by the brilliant but seldom-heard French violinist and composer Louis-Gabriel Guillemain.

Award-winning baroque violinist Alana Youssefian and her ensemble Le Bien-Aimé debut on AVIE showcasing music of the brilliant but seldom-heard French violinist and composer Louis-Gabriel Guillemain. His precociousness was noted at an early age, and Guillemain went on to serve in the court of King Louis XV. His symphonies are as uplifting and innovative as his sonatas are astonishingly virtuosic. While his compositions tested the abilities of his contemporaries, his lasting legacy may have been his knack for bridging the baroque and classical styles, seamlessly adapting to shifting tastes in music and art of his time.

Alana rises to the challenges of Guillemain's technical demands with ease. The young, New York-based violinist is a sought-after soloist for baroque, classical, and romantic repertoire. She has been honoured with the top prize in The Juilliard School's Historical Performance Concerto Competition and a coveted fellowship by The English Concert in America.
