Following recordings of Bach, Couperin and Duphly, Christophe Rousset turns to the harpsichord music of the French composer Claude Balbastre. Little known to the general public, the eighteenth century musician contributed to the rise of the pianoforte. This program features Pièces de Clavecin Book I. These dazzling and expressive scores are complemented by a sonata with violin accompaniment that closes this book with a delicate touch.
