The sonatas that inspired Rameau to compose his Pieces de Clavecin en Concerts in 1741, Mondonville's opus 3 stands as a monument to the French baroque. Mondonville, by all accounts a happy man, conveyed his joie de vivre in these sonatas, which require a high degree of virtuosity to interpret the typically Parisian elegance found therein.
