Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"He charms an astonishing range of instrumental colour from the Goermans-Taskin, infusing his performances with a certain reverence for the music and a sureness of phrasing not often heard Pinnock takes the music beyond the purview of a harpsichord and invests it with a higher level of expression." -Gramophone

"The rich, supple, clear tones of the Goermans/Taskin harpsichord from the Raymond Russell Collection are as persuasive a reason for listening as Pinnock’s increasingly expressive playing. Built in 1764 - 40 years after the publication of "Les Cyclopes" and modified in 178, this is as seductive and versatile an instrument as can be imagined; magnetic (in L’Enharmonique), brilliant (in the A minor Sarabande), and witty ("La Poule"). A gorgeous disc." -The Independent

"From the giant’s trampling feet of "The Cyclops" to the uncontainable rejoicing of "La Triomophante", Pinnock reveals these stunningly inventive pieces in all their true glory." -Classic FM

Gramophone Magazine
Pinnock charms an astonishing range of instrumental colour from the Goermans-Taskin, infusing his performances with a certain reverence for the music and a sureness of phrasing not often heard. He reveals in this recording not only a keen interest in Rameau's craft but also his deep affinity for French music.

BBC Music Magazine
Having championed this music since the 1970s, Pinnock now celebrates his command by re-recording a selection of favourites on an historic instrument. The result is riveting. The instrument inspires Pinnock into phrases more elegant, rhythmic patterning more precise, and passion more profound. The crisp definition of the recording faithfully transmits the unique qualities of the Goerman harpsichord.

Early Music Today
This is a recording of a master at the height of his powers.
