RAMEAU - Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts
Laura Veeze, baroque violin
Josephine van Lier, viola da gamba
Joachim Segger, harpsichord
The complete Pièces de Clavecin en Concert is the sole chamber music work by the great composer Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764). The Concerts are full-fledged trios where the three instruments play roles of equal importance. For the first time in the history of music, the bass does not double the keyboard player’s left hand, but, covering a range of nearly four octaves, has an independent, virtuosic role, of the kind that would appear much later, in Schubert trios!
Never before performed in their entirety in Edmonton, this is a rare opportunity to hear these magnificent pieces on period instruments.
