Rameau Re-lived

Leave a comment

Rameau Re-lived. The Pièces de Clavecin en Concert by J. P. Rameau for violin or flute with harpsichord and viola da gamba or second violin, is a collection of unusually elegant pieces from a completely new style where the harpsichord no longer accompanies the other instruments but they accompany the harpsichord! A total role reversal which harpsichordists have enjoyed back then and still do today! Rameau shows his genius in the exquisite writing and his complete understanding of each instrument and how they can work together.
