Rameau - Pieces de Clavecin en Concerts (2002)

Jean-Philippe Rameau

Rachel Podger, Trevor Pinnock, Jonathan Manson

One of the most striking features of Rameau’s only collection of ensemble chamber music is that it seems less a tantalising essay in what French chamber music might have yielded - had Rameau not sought the bright lights of opera - than a singularly inspired genre of musical images whose significance resides almost exclusively in its own inimitable terms. The magical elusiveness of these works, so deliberately enigmatic, encourages us to ponder the significance of titles such as ‘Le Vézinet’ (as it happens, a forested suburb of Paris with a pleasure garden). We may hear a glistening carrousel but Rameau’s aqueous imagery reflects unending shards of light to ravish our senses.

After beginnings with The Palladian Ensemble and Florilegium, she was leader ofThe English Concert from 1997 to 2002 and in 2004 began a guest directorship with The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment with whom she appeared in a televised bbc Prom in 2007.

Trevor Pinnock

Trevor Pinnock has a unique rapport with audiences the world over as director of the English Concert, as a guest conductor of many of the world's leading orchestras and as a harpsichord soloist of international distinction.

Having received his musical education as a chorister at the Canterbury Cathedral and a scholar at the Royal College of Music, Trevor formed the English Concert in 1973, since then they have earned a worldwide reputation for their many recordings of 17th and 18th century music, but most importantly have won a huge international following for the exceptional quality and the irresistible enthusiasm of their concert performances.
