I heard this on the radio this morning and it completely floored me. I have to admit I’ve never been very aware of Rameau. He’s a contemporary of Lully and Couperin, who I know slightly better. I thought I wasn’t a big fan of solo harpsichord, because it always seemed slightly cold to me (skeletons copulating on a corrugated tin roof…)
But this is completely beautiful and passionate and…Rocking!
I’m not sure this is the best version, but once I find the best version, and save up all my money, I’m getting this!
