About

"Every soul and spirit were in his harpsichord," dramatist Alexis Piron wrote about his friend Rameau. Listeners of today are often more inclined to prefer his operas. However, there is a wealth of wit, wisdom and joy in Rameau's harpsichord works.

This collection of the complete 'Pièces pour clavecin', performed by Bertrand Cuiller with his customary finesse and passion, illuminates all of the beauty and virtuosity of these works.

Bertrand Cuiller devotes his recital career to the solo harpsichord repertory, with a particular penchant for the English composers William Byrd and John Bull, whose music he has recorded for Mirare and Alpha. His discography for these labels also includes harpsichord concertos by J S Bach with his father Daniel Cuiller and Stradivaria, and sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti.

In 2014 Bernard Cuiller founded the ensemble Le Caravansérail, with the aim of mounting projects centring on composers who are especially close to his heart and whose music he wishes to explore with larger forces. He also appears as a chamber musician with Bruno Cocset and Les Basses Réunies and as a member of La Reveuse.
