A fascinating musical journey in Europe of the Enlightenment, with musical works of English, German and French Baroque, from the era of absolutism to the French revolution.
Dimitris Kountouras plays flute with a beak and baroque flute, while the magic harpsichord "sings" in the hands of Panos Iliopoulos.
