Alexandre Tharaud CD - Versailles

Jean-Philippe Rameau, Robert de Visée, Pancrace Royer, François Couperin, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Jean Henry D'Anglebert, Jacques Duphly, Claude Balbastre.

Alexandre Tharaud pays tribute to composers associated with the courts of the French kings Louis XIV, XV and XVI.  Lully, Rameau, Charpentier and François Couperin stand beside lesser-known masters: d’Anglebert, Forqueray, Royer, Duphly and Balbastre. “I’ve always been attracted by French music of this period,” says Tharaud, adding that when he plays the album’s initial Rameau prelude, “It’s like being alone at Versailles, opening the doors and entering those huge, imposing rooms.”
