Booklet
Céline Frisch, the French harpsichordist who had previously turned in superlative recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations and d'Anglebert's Pièces de clavecin, here delivers a sumptuous disc of Rameau's Pièces de clavecin. Of the three works on the program, one is the fairly traditional Suite in A minor from 1706 with its standard stylized dance forms, while the other two are the more mature Suite in E minor from 1724 and Suite in G minor from 1728 containing its more evocative pieces like Le Rappel des Oiseaux and Les Sauvages. But whatever the piece, Frisch brings a freshness, an originality, and a virtuosity that are positively bracing. There's color in her playing blended with wit and sensitivity, along with a sense of rhythm that carries all before it. Whether in the hearty Musette, the sublime L'Enharmonique, or even the silly Le Poule, Frisch finds the energy and affection that makes Rameau's music instantly appealing even for listeners who may not be fans of French Baroque harpsichord music. As previously, Alpha provides Frisch with sound that is the next best thing to being there. © TiVo

Booklet Distinctions Choc du Monde de la Musique - Recommandé par Répertoire - 4F de Télérama
Until very recently pianists no longer dared play the French harpsichord repertoire : the pertinence of the "authentic" performances on period instruments by new artists had established their claims — and we had decided once and for all that this music was unsuited to today's pianos... Hence Alexandre Tharaud's approach is both brave and original : he is equally indebted to the legendary recordings of Marcelle Meyer and to current interpretations on the harpsichord. Hard work, humililty, the urge to carve out all the poetic contours of this marvellous music : the young pianist has taken the time to assimilate the tremendous contribution of the "Baroque movement", yet without repudiating his origins nor his own style of playing.

Chamber Music - Released March 1, 2012 | Reference Recordings

If you like your Rameau big, strong, and in your face, this disc of the French Baroque composer's Piéces de clavecin en concerts performed by Baroque Nouveau recorded and released by Reference Recordings will be the disc for you. Sixteen movements from five of the composer's concerts are included here: dances such as the Second Concert's Minuet and the Third Concert's "Tambourin," character pieces such as the Fifth Concert's "La Cupis" and the Fourth Concert's "L'Indiscrète," and musical portraits like the Fifth's "La Forqueray" and "La Marais." Whatever its type, every movement here receives an extremely powerful performance from the West Coast-based Baroque Nouveau. Each player -- harpsichordist Charles Sherman, violinist Anthony Martin, flutist Stephen Schultz, and viola da gambaist Josh Lee -- is a highly individualistic soloist as well as an assertive ensemble player, and the performances here are intensely expressive, muscularly rhythmic, and virtuosic. This approach may or may not be to every Rameau fan's taste. Those who recall with fondness the classic 1971 Teldec recordings by Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Brüggen, Sigiswald Kuijken, and Wieland Kuijken may find Baroque Nouveau's style a bit too brash and brawny. Similarly, Reference Recording's incredibly clean and immediate sound may seem like too much of a good thing in comparison to Telefunken's cool, clear but evocative stereo sound. Still, the effectiveness of both the performance and the sound here cannot be denied, and those who enjoy French Baroque chamber music may well enjoy this disc. © TiVo
