Thank you for this suggestion I forgot to mention this juwel. And right
you are, this performance is great. It's fast but ..... still very smooth
in the final thrillers.
That CD is very precious to me indeed because Pinnock picked some
How about picking 'Gavotte avec 6 Doubles' instead of 'Le rappel des
oiseaux' or 'La Dauphine' the more wellknown pieces by Rameau.
Taking Balbastre, Fiocco and Daquin in the collection of the Hall of Fame
and no pieces by D'Anglebert, Froberger or Chambonnieres. Only a
contribution by Kuhnau, Royer or Forqueray for bigshots like (JS) Bach,
(F) Couperin and (D) Scarlatti and Haendel could be more stimulating imho.
