The Sun King Louis XIV, who, in the truest sense of the word, had all of France and the court of Versailles dancing around him, died exactly 300 years ago. Dance, music, theater: these arts all experienced an unprecedented flourishing back then. On her new GENUIN CD the harpsichordist Rebecca Maurer weaves pieces from the most brilliant epoch of the harpsichord to form a musical tapestry full of allusions and cross-references. That she performs on a historical Ruckers harpsichord from Neuchâtel strengthens the magic even more: poetic music in a magnificent garment, played with perfect timing, with an extraordinary sense of tonal color and sweeping lines. A true journey into a golden age.

Here you can find a PDF with secondary literature for further reading.

"Rebecca Maurer delivers fine performances. D'Anglebert's transcriptions come off very well, with good attention to their dramatic origin. Louis Couperin's Passacaille in C is one of the highlights."
Review on the MusicWeb International by Johan van Veen, December 2015

"Al di là di queste soluzioni, indubbiamente curiose ed interessanti, val la pena evidenziare la qualità estetica di un percorso musicale di notevole valenza e varietà espressiva"
