About

Christophe Rousset plays the harpsichord pieces by the French composer Balbastre (pronounced Balbātre) as a documented interpreter. Little known by the public at large, the musician of the eighteenth century helped to perfect the fortepiano and to publicise this new instrument. Influenced by composers such as Handel and Domenico Scarlatti, masters of the vocal repertoire, he seduces by a virtuoso writing, full of effects. A sonata with violin accompaniment ends this programme with a delicate touch.
