Notes & Reviews:

Until very recently, pianists no longer dared play the French harpsichord repertoire; the movement by "authentic" performances on period instruments argued that this music was unsuited to today's pianos. This new disc effectively counters that argument. The UK journal, The Indepaendent wrote: "The pianist Alexandre Tharaud has recorded a disc of Rameau that quashes the "period instrument" argument as successfully as Glenn Gould does for Bach."

Gramophone Magazine
Tharaud combines pianistic imagination and stylistic sensitivity to locate the fidgety energy of La poule, the rhythmic playfulness of Les tricotets and the grandeur and verve of the Gavotte et doubles, and his playing has clarity and brilliance. To my mind no other pianist has reproduced the spirit of this composer more enchantingly.

bbc.co.uk - John Armstrong
You come away from the recording of these two complete suites with great respect for the young Frenchman's musicality and technical facility, and even greater respect for Rameau's imagination and harmonic invention, which is exactly as it should be.

The Independent
The pianist Alexandre Tharaud has recorded a disc of Rameau that quashes the "period instrument" argument as successfully as Glenn Gould does for Bach... warmly expressed and beautifully recorded.
