Steven Devine (harpsichord)

Celebrated harpsichordist Steven Devine completes his monumental survey for Resonus Classics of the complete solo keyboard works by Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683–1764) with this third volume in the collection.

Featuring the Cinq Pièces and the individual work La Dauphine, also included in this album is the substantial compendium Les Indes Galantes – keyboard transcriptions that Rameau himself made from his own opera-ballet of the same name composed in 1735/6. In these transcriptions Devine is joined by harpsichordist Robin Bigwood who lends a third hand in select movements, while this volume once again was recorded on a copy by Ian Tucker of the Ruckers/Hemsch harpsichord in Hatchlands' Cobbe Collection. 

Album Booklet (PDF)

'Devine is a superb musical guide – varied, expressive, technically agile – but he has provided, too, helpful and clear programme notes on the stylistic challenges of this music...its powers of expression run deep. You won’t find a better exponent than Devine.'
