Rameau is widely acknowledged as one of the world's major composers, but whereas pianists are happy to play music by his contemporaries Bach, Handel and Scarlatti, they have largely ignored Rameau's glorious output for keyboard.
This series (this is the third of three CDs) aims to remedy that shortcoming by recording all of Rameau's music for keyboard - the first ever to do so.
The pianist Stephen Gutman is a specialist in French and Baroque music and his expertise produces readings that satisfy the stylistic requirements of the music and exploit the sonorities of the modern concert grand.
The booklet notes are by Britain's leading Rameau scholar, Graham Sadler.
Stephen Gutman has earned a reputation as one of Britain's most creative performers of modern music. He has also made a speciality of interpreting French Baroque keyboard repertoire on the modern piano. He has given the UK premieres of works by Birtwistle and Schnittke, amongst others. New works have been written for him by such composers as Julian Anderson, Michael Finnissy, Simon Holt, Gabriel Jackson and John Woolrich.
