Expedition Audio Recommended
Typical of the period, Royer's music, based largely on dance forms, is highly ornamented and marked by strong contrasts in tempo and fast chord changes. Calling for dense outpourings of sound, it is very "thick" at times... Brilliant Classics provides full, crisp sound for Mahugo's exciting performances... ... read more ...

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Royer's music can be amusing, thrilling, and poignant. At its best, it is intensely moving. Mahugo quotes Royer's preface to his harpsichord pieces: "The pieces are open to great variety, passing from the tender to the lively, from the simple to the tumultuous, often successively in the same piece." This variety of emotion stems from Royer's activity as a theatrical composer of operas and ballets. Many of Royer's harpsichord pieces, including the monumental 'Marche des Scythes', are transcriptions from his operas. Mahugo is graciously attentive to the moods and whims of Royer's pieces. He is as adept at creating a vivacious, rhythmic "percussion section", ('Tambourins') as he is at suspending time completely ('Les Tendres Sentiments'). People who relish the most extravagant and sensitively crafted late French Baroque music will appreciate this fine release.
