5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful recording, 22 July 2011
This review is from: Rameau: Harpsichord Pieces (Audio CD)
I have been listening to this recording in parallel to Gilbert Rowland's Rameau Harpsichord music: Vol. 1, essentially the same selection. I respect and love them both, and coming down as it does to personal taste, I prefer Yates' recording. As virtuoso an interpretation as Rowland's, upon repeated listening it yields for me many subtle moments. In Le Rappel des Oiseaux she produces in the first half a vivid naturalistic 'woodland setting'; in the second half the listener is 'returned to the drawingroom' as it were listening to the conversation through open doors: realism is never allowed to sweep away civilisation. If you are a harpsichord student you can learn a great deal from Sophie Yates' playing; in any case this is a beautifully performed and moving record.
