Steven Devine has performed all over the world as a harpsichord soloist (his recent Chandos recording of the Goldberg Variations was described by Gramophone Magazine as "one of the best"), he is a highly sought-after continuo player with permanent positions with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Classical Opera and London Baroque and directs repertoire with a wide range of groups with repertoire from 16th century polyphony to new commissions.
Rameau Volume 2 Released!
The second volume of Steven Devine's acclaimed 4-volume survey is now available
Acclaimed harpsichordist Steven Devine continues his four volume survey of Jean-Philippe Rameau's works for harpsichord with the third book of his Pièces de Clavecin.
Some of the last music for solo harpsichord composed by Rameau, these masterpieces of the French Baroque make a huge contribution to the harpsichord repertoire. Written shortly after the completion of the second book, these two suites represent the most substantial of the three books of Pièces de Clavecin, and are a further mixture of traditional suite movements and fascinating character pieces, in particular the deceptive 'Les Trois Mains' and humorous depiction of 'La Poule'.
Released in the 250th anniversary of the composer's death, Devine again performs on a copy by Ian Tucker of an instrument by Andreas Ruckers (1636) with ravalement by Henri Hemsch (1763).
