About the album

The world premiere recording of the complete Pieces de clavecin by Antoine Forqueray, court musician of Louis XN and one of the greatest viola da gamba players of all times. The Pieces de Clavecin comprise five Suites containing 32 pieces in total and were published after the composer's death by his son, the equally famous Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Forqueray in two versions: as viola da gamba solos with continuo and in a transcription for solo harpsichord, the latter being the better-known version.

Although famous players such as Gustav Leonhardt and Ton Koopman have recorded one or two of these suites, no one has ever before recorded all five of them as the equally outstanding harpsichordist jacques Ogg has now done. These are astonishing works in the virtuoso tradition of Rameau and Couperin, tasteful, original and sometimes bizarre, but also deeply-felt and always surprising.

Adembenemende werken in de virtuoze traditie voor klavecimbel
Deze wereldpremière opname bevat de complete stukken op klavecimbel van Antoine Forqueray, hofmuzikant van Lodewijk XIV en één van de grootste viola da gamba spelers aller tijden. De Pieces de Clavecin bevatten vijf Suites met 32 stukken in totaal en werden na de dood van de componist gepubliceerd door zijn zoon, de net zo beroemde Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Forqueray in twee versies: als viola da gamba solo’s met continuo en in een transcriptie voor solo klavecimbel waarbij deze laatste de bekendste versie werd. Hoewel beroemde musici als Gustav Leonhardt en Ton Koopman één of twee van deze suites hebben opgenomen, heeft niemand ze alle vijf opgenomen, behalve de net zo hoogstaande klavecimbelspeler Jacques Ogg. Adembenemende werken in de virtuoze traditie van Rameau en Couperin, smaakvol, origineel en soms bizar, maar ook zeer gevoelig en altijd verrassend. En prachtig opgenomen.

Antoine Forqueray

Antoine Forqueray stems from a family of musicians, comparable to (but less famous than) the Couperins. He was educated as a viola a gamba player at the French court, under the protection of Louis XIV. In 1789 he was appointed as royal chamber musician. As a younger contemporary of Marais, he was one of the most famous gamba players of his time, and he also composed Pièces de viole and harpsichord pieces which betray more Italian (Corelli, Vivaldi) influence than French. Many of the harpsichord pieces were arranged by his son Jean-Baptiste (1699-1782) and only published in 1747. Rumor has it that the son reported his father to the Parisian police because of ‘fraud, visiting whores and gambling’ since he...
