I did not review it. It is, imho, only OK. The orchestral playing is fabulous and the mch sound excellent. Fischer chooses tempi wisely but the overall effect seems superficial and the soloists disappoint.

Heard live, I'd have been pleased but not one I'd likely listen to again.

Nadia & Lili Boulanger / Bacewicz / Bernstein / Piazzolla - The Boulanger Legacy
Merel Vercammen & Dina Ivanova
ttrptk
Qobuz 24/88.2




Entertaining new release from the Dutch label.
Nadia Boulanger was one of the greatest music pedagogues of the 20th century.
Students of her include Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, Barenboim and Quincy Jones.
Her sister Lili was an ever bigger talent, but she died very young.

Every composer on this album sat with Nadia to learn.

I'm following this young harpsichordist since he won the Musica Antiqua Price of Bruges a couple of years ago.
This album is splendid... for lovers of the instrument.
Pieces we're used to hear on a (grand) piano, but this time on an instrument Rameau originally composed them for.

During his lifetime, Rameau enjoyed a glittering reputation and was admired by all Europe, while Debussy’s Hommage à Rameau proves that his fame survived down the centuries. But what do we know about the rest of the Rameau family? After a highly acclaimed album devoted to the Forqueray family, the harpsichordist-genealogist Justin Taylor sets out on the trail of Jean-Philippe’s son Claude-François and his nephew Lazare. To be sure, Rameau’s genius dwarfs all around him, as is demonstrated by such pieces as La Livri, La Poule and L’Égyptienne, not to mention the magnificent Nouvelle Suite in A minor, but the music of his descendants has its own interest.

Justin Taylor introduces us to a work by Claude-François Rameau (La Forqueray) and the Sonata No. 1 in E major by Lazare Rameau. He switches from the splendid harpsichord of the Château d’Assas (a two-manual instrument of the first half of the eighteenth century, attributed to the Lyon-based maker Donzelague) to the 1891 Érard piano of the Musée de la Musique in Paris for Debussy’s tribute to his great predecessor. © Alpha Classics

Revisiting this release from last month.
He's a really good harpsichordist.
