Notes & Reviews:

In 2014 Ketil Haugsand records the complete works for harpsichord solo by Jean-Philippe Rameau, marking 250 years since the death of the French composer. Rameau composed most of his keyboard works at a time when he was essentially a professional keyboard player and teacher who had a growing interest and involvement in the theatre. By the time of his death, his achievements as a composer of operatic works had eclipsed whatever fame he had achieved as a keyboard composer. Taken as a whole, however, his harpsichord compositions contain an incredible array of appealing melodies, clever formal devices and subtle references that make him one of the most extraordinary French keyboard composers of all time.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Ketil Haugsand is a stylish, knowledgeable, and extremely accomplished artist. Haugsand is in their company, certainly: he has the required virtuosity in the Gavotte with Doubles and 'Les Niais de Sologne', all the right sentiment in the Allemande from Nouvelles Suites and 'L'Entretien des Muses'. Interpretively, he stands midway between Yates and Vinikour, and his instrument.
