J.P. Rameau by Jean-Philippe Rameau

Book Description

A contemporary of Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, and Telemann, Jean-Phillipe Rameau (1683 1764) was a notable theorist and innovator and the preeminent French composer of his day. The depth and power that characterize his music are in ample evidence in this volume of all 63 of Rameau's works for keyboard, published between 1706 and 1741, including such well-known pieces as "Musette en Rondeau," "Tambourin," "Les Niais de Sologne," "Les Cyclopes," and "La Poule." The music is reproduced here from the important and well-produced edition of Rameau's keyboard works edited by Camille Saint-Saens. Because the composer attempted to use his keyboard as a sustaining instrument, these pieces lend themselves especially well to performance on modern pianos. Now today's musicians can enjoy Rameau's complete "oeuvre" for solo keyboard in this inexpensive high-quality edition."
