Les Boréades: Pièces de clavecin en concert

  • Chapelle Saint-Louis 4230 Rue Drolet Montréal, QC, H2W 2L6 Canada (map)

Jean-Philippe Rameau was a master harpsichordist, and the works he left for the instruments may be few, but they are very important. He published the works put together “in concerts” in 1741, where the instrument is accompanied by either a flute or a violin and a viola de gamba – a formation which would later become the trio with piano from the classic era. Written for M. de La Pouplinière’s private entourage, most of them are presented as portraits of friends, protectors and acquaintances of both sexes. Sporting an edgy yet sensible feeling, this makes it one of Rameau’s most appreciated works.
