4.0 out of 5 stars Warmth and spirit, 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Sophie: Popular Harpsichord Music of the 18th Century (Audio CD)
This is a beautiful disk. The harpsichord is unusually mellow and warm. (I wish the notes told you what harpsichord it was.) The pieces are played with insight, and liveliness wherever required. I'd have given it five stars if it were not quite so popular - too familiar for my taste. I would rather have had something else than the Bach Italian Concerto. But beautiful renditions of everything. Les Barricades Mystérieuses is particularly lovely. No-one is sure what the 'Barricades' refer to; I've never heard masks suggested before. More often it is thought to be a reference to the unresolved harmonies or crossed bar-lines. Altogether if you want an introduction to this music, you could not do better. You may never want to hear these pieces on the piano again.
