The rediscovery and interpretation of the Baroque repertoire (a musical genre that spans the 17th and first half of the 18th centuries) has been one of the most passionate and exciting debates of the past decades.

The movement began in the early 1950s with the advent of the LP and the creation of the Erato label and reached its peak in the 1970s with the heated debates between the proponents of the classical and symphonic tradition on the one hand and, on the other, the advocates of a return to the sources, to period instruments and tuning forks.
