The celebrated harpsichordist Steven Devine makes his Resonus debut with the first of three significant volumes surveying the keyboard works of the French Baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764).
"...Steven Devine plays on a harpsichord copied from a 1636 Ruckers model. Its sonorities are clear and penetrating yet never strident, and lend themselves both to the music and to Devines meticulous technique... The recorded ambience is clear and discreetly resonant in this digital-only release, and equally attractive in either 320kbps or lossless download formats."

Performance ***** Recording *****
"...He [Devine] is authorative, suave, technically dazzling and delivers immaculately manicured ornaments that lend brilliance and expressive introspection where required ... Devine delivers an account of the famous Tambourin that takes no hostages... All told, an invigorating addition to Rameau year - roll on volumes two and three!"
