CONCERT – FRENCH MUSIC FOR HARPSICHORD


Harpsichordist Pierre Hantaï is a free-spirited artist, able to breathe life into early pieces as though they were written yesterday. He loves emphasizing their dance rhythms, taking us straight back to 17th century Versailles, at the time of the courts of the French kings. Several pieces have no titles, as though they were the portrait of a person or a character type. The harpsichord itself resembles a painting, with its ornate decoration.
