La Foila

La Foila means “madness.” Jean-Baptiste Lully was the first composer to formalize this style of composition in the mid-Baroque era, and other composers followed with variation symphonies. Even though this is Baroque music, the style is ‘madness’ compared to traditional compositional methods. The trio in this video are harpsichord, Baroque violin and viola da gamba, a cello-like instrument that sounds really attractive.
