Trevor Pinnock appeared on Avie catalogue number 0001 (conducting the English Concert in Handel’s opera Tamerlano). Here he appears as solo harpsichordist, a role for which he has won world-wide acclaim and a Gramophone Award. The centrepiece of Trevor’s new recording is Rameau’s rondeau Les Cyclopes, rather oddly named for the mythical man-eating beast but perhaps aptly employing all the delightful compositional eccentricities of the French composer. Rounding out the CD are two extensive suites.

The exceptional instrument heard here is the Jean Goermans / Pascal Taskin harpsichord (Paris 1763, 1783/84) from the Raymond Russell collection of early keyboard instruments at St. Cecilia’s Hall Museum of Instruments, University of Edinburgh.
