Gustav Leonhardt proves that he still can perform with erudition and freshness with these pieces by Frescobaldi and Louis Couperin. The sophistication of the music is all there, and so is the sense of improvisation. In the Frescobaldi, Leonhardt shapes phrases and sections of music to sound as if they were spontaneous dialogues and conversations between refined intellectuals. Even so, and at a moderate pacing, they are actively involved and not dryly academic. The refinement is also a strong feature of Couperin's highly stylized dances. Also at a moderate pacing that rarely varies, even between movements of the suites, his music comes across as being used for dances at the highest levels of society. It is as if only the finest people, dressed in the finest silks and satins, would dance to Couperin's music, and yet Leonhardt still infuses it with some warmth so that it is not at all staid. The only unfortunate aspect of this album is that sameness of tempo throughout the program. Without the contrast of more widely varying tempos between pieces, particularly in the Couperin suites where every piece is also in the same key, the listener can easily lose focus and thereby miss out on the details of the music and the performance, both of which deserve attention. © TiVo

François de Bedos de Celles (1709-1779), described as a "monk of notable erudition," was also a highly trained and supremely talented builder of organs in eighteenth century France. The greatest of his organs was Dom Bedos, built for the abbey of Saint-Croix in Bordeaux -- a glorious instrument with rich blends and subtle colors, with nuanced balances and stark contrasts, with whispering pianissimos and roaring fortissimos. Leonhardt's chosen program opens with the organ extracts from François Couperin's Messe propre pour les couvents, deeply devout music that Leonhardt performs with absolute command and complete dedication. The remainder of the program is a collection of works by better- and lesser-known composers, ranging from three Voluntaries by John Blow and two Toccatas by Georg Muffat to a Fantasia by Abraham van den Kerchkoven and a Chaconne by Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, but Leonhardt performs all of them with total commitment and rapturous ecstasy. Alpha's sound is once again the omega of recorded sound. © TiVo

If the Alpha label had done nothing more than return Gustav Leonhardt to the studio, it would still be one of the best contemporary classical record companies. That everything else about its releases -- the sound, the liner notes, even the reproductions on the covers -- is as good or better than what any other classical company manages is only icing on the cake. Leonhardt has been one of the finest harpsichordists in the world for more than 40 years, and his recordings of the repertoire from Frescobaldi to Bach have been the standards against which all other recordings have been judged. But Leonhardt had made no recordings for most of the last decade, and listeners began to wonder if he ever would again. Now, with his fourth release for Alpha, listeners can finally relax, confident in the knowledge that Leonhardt has indeed returned. This 2005 disc of keyboard music by Byrd finds Leonhardt at the top of his form. As always, his technique is secure, and nothing in Byrd's virtuoso writing is beyond him. And, as always, his musicianship is assured, and nothing in Byrd's sensitive music is beyond him. Leonhardt's Pavanes are stately yet soulful, his Galliards are exciting yet playful, his character pieces are amusing yet graceful, and his closing Fantasia is controlled yet colorful. If one could have a complaint about this disc, it is that at 52 minutes, it might seem too short. But so full of delight and wonder are Leonhardt's performances that only a curmudgeon would dare criticize them. © TiVo

Auszeichnungen Qobuz' Schallplattensammlung
Dieses Album ist der Familie Couperin (Louis, François und Louis-Armand) gewidmet und wurde im Mai 1987 in der schönen niederländischen Stadt Haarlem aufgenommen. Es bildet die Quintessenz von Leonhardts lebenslanger Praxis sowie seiner Reflexionen über die große französische Musik des 17. Jahrhunderts, die er so sehr liebte. Wir finden hier die Sachlichkeit, die immer das Markenzeichen des großen Cembalisten war: diese Art, sein immenses Wissen mit seinem eigenen niederländischen Erbe in Einklang zu bringen und mit einer fast mönchischen Innerlichkeit an die Musik heranzugehen. Auf Grundlage seiner fundierten Kenntnisse und mit zunehmender Reife scheint sich Gustav Leonhardt dieser Musik mit neuer Freude hinzugeben und sie mit großer Freiheit und Raffinesse erstrahlen zu lassen. Das Programm kommt einer Meditation über die Einsamkeit nahe, von der strengen Suite in d-Moll von Louis Couperin über die Préludes aus L’Art de toucher le clavecin des großen François bis zu den galanten Stücken von Louis-Armand. Die herrliche Ruhe von Dodo ou L’Amour au berceau, die anmutige Spritzigkeit von L’Évaporée, die Eleganz von La Princesse de Chabeuil sowie die fröhliche Schlusspirouette von L’Arlequine sind lauter Impulse des Herzens, die die wichtige Rolle des niederländischen Cembalisten im Zentrum der barocken Musikbewegung bestätigen. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Alpha Productions released A Tribute to Gustav Leonhardt: The Last Recordings about six months after the prodigious musician's death in January 2012. The set is made up of the last five albums Leonhardt recorded over his long career, made between 2001 and 2007. They fortuitously include examples of the three performing disciplines for which he was renowned -- as an organist, harpsichordist, and choral conductor -- and are infused with the depth of musicological research and insight that he brought to all his endeavors. It's an immensely satisfying collection, a fitting, mature, autumnal summation of a long and illustrious career, made up of music of the Baroque, along with some late Renaissance repertoire, much of it from off the beaten path. Regardless of medium, his performances were refined and elegant but with a lively internal energy and an unerring sense of pacing. They were always disciplined, but a listener could never come away from hearing him playing or conducting and think of Baroque music as predictable or metronomic. Three of the discs are devoted to harpsichord music of France, Germany, England, and Italy; one disc to a similarly broad collection of pieces for organ; and one disc to two secular cantatas by J.S. Bach, in which he's expertly joined by Les Chantres du Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles and the chamber orchestra Café Zimmermann. Alpha's sound is impeccable, detailed, and immediate. © TiVo
