His music, all of which involves the viol in some way, was influenced by Marin Marais (whose death the composer commemorated in a tombeau) and Italian style, which is most prominent in Dollé's late works (although they retain the characteristically French ornamentation). Dollé's music survives in five printed collections (all published in Paris): - Sonates en trio pour les violons, flûtes-traversières et violes avec la basse continue, op. 1 (1737) - Pièces de viole (for bass viol and basso continuo), op. 2 (1737) - Pièces pour le pardessus de viole (for 1/2 pardessus de viole and basso continuo), op. 3 (1737) - Sonates, duos & pièces (for 1/2 pardessus de viole/violin/violone/flute and basso continuo, op.
4 (1737) - Sonates à deux pardessus de viole sans basse, op. 6 (1754) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
