Jean Philippe Rameau New Suites of Harpsichord Pieces
About Jean Philippe Rameau's New Suites of Harpsichord Pieces
The third and last of Rameau´s anthologies appeared in 1728 as Nouvelles suites de pieces de clavecin. It includes both dances and genre pieces, and is headed by a long and graceful allemande. One of the favourites here is No. 12 The Hen, the clucking of which is specifically detailed by the composer in the printed music.
