Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer: Premiere Livre de Pièces de Clavecin
Mie Hayashi (harpsichord)
The gifted Japanese-born harpsichordist, Mie Hayashi makes her Resonus Classics debut with this recording of the complete Premiere Livre de Pièces de Clavecin by the French Baroque composer Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer.
Representing the majority of what remains of Royer’s solo keyboard works, this compelling collection of mostly character pieces demonstrates a unique and distinctive voice from Paris in the first half of the eighteenth century. Hayashi offers vivid performances on a stunning copy of a 1749 double-manual Jean-Claude Goujon instrument by Andrew Garlick.
