Pierre Danican Philidor was a French musician and composer under Louis XIV. The son of Jacques Danican Philidor le cadet, he became oboist and violinist of la Grande Ecurie du Roi Louis XIV in 1697. He later obtained a position as gambist at la Chambre du Roi. Louis XIV was extremely pleased with Pierre D. Philidor and considered his music as the « perfect representation of his purest taste for the arts ».
The second Suite belongs to his « Premier Œuvre de Trio, contenant 6 Suites », dedicated to the Bishop of Rennes, Grand Maître de la Chapelle du Roy.

Drafted at the Music School of Waterloo, the Ensemble Bradamante took its definitive form at the 2006 edition of the Axion Classics competition. After winning a First Prize, the group performed at different events such as the Festival de Wallonie and the Juillet musical de Saint-Hubert. After an interval due to the musicians’ diverging study paths which led them to different European Conservatories, the Ensemble Bradamante met again and found a renewed desire to share its enthusiasm and its pleasure to play its broad and original repertoire.
