Discography: (CA) Analekta CD Release: "Luc Beauséjour: Baroque Session on Piano" (Feb 2016)

Contributed by admin on Feb 10, 2016

Newly released from Analekta record label:

"Outstanding harpsichordist Luc Beauséjour has done the unexpected. Analekta is proud to present his brand new recording, Baroque Session on Piano, which once again raises the question of whether works intended for the harpsichord should be played on the piano. Luc Beauséjour answers the question by playing. ...

For however many pianists have played Bach, Scarlatti, Handel, Rameau or even Couperin and Froberger, few harpsichordists have championed the harpsichord repertoire on the modern piano.

Luc Beauséjour has made a selection of German, Italian, French and English pieces from the Baroque period, a repertoire in which he has become a performer of choice.

“In any event, what matters here, as is always the case in music, is the pleasure of playing and of introducing listeners to the works of these great composers. And this project has provided me with considerable pleasure – I only hope you’ll enjoy every bit as much!”
