You are a sadistic harpsichordist.
Does 'sadistic' refers to 'sad' in English or to 'Marquis de Sade' in French?
I'm just teasing...
Can you please tell me what title I should use for this set? What is the book actually called, that sort of thing so I can make a new category for it. Unless you just want it to go under Rameau "miscellaneous"? Also, I am not complaining, but 10 recordings at once will take me a long time to process and I have very limited free-time these days. So just to let you know, it may take me the whole weekend to get all these done.
Regarding the work load for you: yes, I'm a very bad boy to submit such a bunch of short pieces in one shot, so I am worth punishing making me wait for some days or weeks
As for classification, if I refer to my Durand edition of Rameau's integral solo harpsichord music, the pieces appear as follows:
- 'Premier livre de pièces de clavecin (1706)
- 'Pièces de clavecin (1724)'
The present series forms the beginning of this book. Also, 'Les Niais de Sologne', recorded by Sandro Bisotti, pertains to this group;
- 'Nouvelles suites de pièces de clavecin ou second livre'
(no publication date). In this one you find 'L'Egyptienne' (another tune of which a recording is available at PS)
- one isolated piece called "La Dauphine
- 'Cinq pièces extraites des pièces en concert'
(which are yet on the site).
Therefore I guess it coud be nice to set on the Rameau page 'Pièces de clavecin (1724)'
, 'Nouvelles suites de pièces de clavecin ou second livre'
and 'Cinq pièces extraites des pièces en concert'
, and to put links from these groups to the lists of individual pieces.
When you have time, Monica... Regards,
