22 passages for harpsichord between love and folly. In a CD rich in sensuality, the pleasure promises in the erotic universe of XVIIIth century. Recorded in the cardinal’s hall at Villa Medici in Rome, using a historical harpsichord owned by the Académie française, this recording restores to us the melancholic languor, the most unbridled virtuosity typical of the great French harpsichord players, ranging from Couperin to Royer, including François Couperin’s incomparable elegance. The voluptuousness and obsession that lead to self-denial. Behind the abstract stuff of music that unveils and hides at the same time, the inaccessible peaks of the risky passions of that century. Listen and see.
