Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This unique recording re-introduces Rinaldo Alessandrini as a solo harpsichordist and reviews the concepts of chaconne and passacaglia in the most eclectic and captivating way. This recording is the first album for years featuring Rinaldo Alessandrini as a harpsichordist and not as a conductor. This is a highly interesting recording presenting an eclectic program that reviews the concepts of chaconne and passacaglia over music history, from Frescobaldi to Ligeti. On this album Rinaldo Alessandrini recorded a piece composed by himself - Deraisonnable beaute - alongside masterpieces of famous composers such as Handel, Couperin and Purcell.

Gramophone Magazine
Alessandrini gets right down to business, opening with a bracing and full-bodied rendition of Frescobaldi's Partite cento sopra passacagli that vigorously plays up the music's audacious harmonies and energetic momentum... Alessandrini's original Chaconne simply flows from his beautifully reproduced instrument like cool oil.
