We have several recordings of Gossec´s instrumental music but not nearly enough of his operas.
The excellent Belgian orchestra Les Agremens under Guy van Waas does an invaluable service to a composer that serves as a bridge between Glück and Cherubini (and that is in French opera of course).
Excellent live recording, very enjoyable.

Thanks for inaugurating the new thread Jared, I was wondering if I was left out of the other thread...

^^ well, I'd never actually seen that disk before, Fergus... I believe that most of the Flute sonatas were written when he was about 4?!
