Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Collectors who've enjoyed Luc Beausejour's sensitive collaborations with violinist James Ehnes in the Bach Violin Sonatas will find the harpsichordist on solid footing as a solo artist over the course of Book 1's 24 Preludes and Fugues. In general, Beausejour is a centrist. He channels his clean, fluent technique toward musical ends, favors steady tempos that broach no extremes, and largely eschews the fussy agogic arrhythmia one too many harpsichordists manifest in the name of authenticity... a subtle ear governs Beausejour's finger legato mastery. For example, by prolonging certain notes a split second beyond their written duration, the harpsichordist intensifies the E-flat minor prelude's poignant lyricism and brings similar textural variety to the B-flat minor prelude's accompanying chords... Naxos provides fine sound and annotations." -Classics Today
