Little is known about the French composer Louis-Antoine Dornel, who occupied several posts in Paris as an organist and as 'maitre de musique'.
The few works that survive from Dornel's entire output testify to a seemingly talented and inventive composer eager to try the latest musical fashions.
The 'Six Suittes en Trio' consist of a number of dances all written in the same key and intended to be performed as a unit.
The music is remarkably varied, from the majestic opening sections of the 'Ouvertures' and the intensely expressive 'Preludes' to the fast and light 'Rigodons'.
