Notes and Editorial Reviews

The keyboard music of Jean-Philippe Rameau on a 4 disc set. Highest Award from the French magazine Télérama.

Blandine Rannou and Alexandre Tharaud have released Rameau discs devoted to the composer's French Baroque keyboard style. (Alexandre Tharaud) takes the harpsichord repertoire into the modern piano but here (Blandine Rannou) presents the harpsichord in music sometimes in a slower tempo.

- Renaud Machart, Le Monde, 2001

The rigor and height of Rameaus inspiration fascinates generations of interpreters, evidenced now by young musicians. Promoted by the small label Zig-Zag, Blandine Rannou dares to embark on the full harpsichord pieces recorded solo and with ensemble.
