Fantasy in A minor, BWV 922. Johann Sebastian Bach. Fantasia & Fugue in A minor, BWV 904. 2. Fantasia.

Played on a 1632 Ruckers harpsichord, Rousset's recital explores some of Bach's most vivacious and unusual works. Sunday 23 January 2011 01:00.

Christophe Rousset (French: ; born 12 April 1961) is an internationally renowned French harpsichordist and conductor, specializing in the performance of baroque music on period instruments. He is also a musicologist, with a passion for opera and European music of the 17th and 18th centuries, and is the founder of the French music ensemble Les Talens Lyriques.

Fantasy is the right word for a harpsichord recital superbly played on an instrument built in 1632 and amended a century later. It’s a feisty creature that has warmth and character; I even love the clatter that it makes when Rousset changes registers. The Bach programme is special too, with fantasias, preludes and fugues interspersed between two charming sets of variations in the brilliant Italian style. Rousset’s mastery is total; every thread of counterpoint dances, crystal-clear, before us. A delightful disc.

Christophe Rousset’s new album, Bach Fantasy, reveals the freedom, rigour and improvisatory bravura of Bach’s genius through a miscellany of pieces less frequently aired than his canonical keyboard works. Many of them will be familiar, though, in different guises, like the Prelude, Fugue and Allegro, BWV 998, more often played on the lute, or the mesmerising Adagio, BWV 968, adapted from the Sonata in C for unaccompanied violin. will relish the splendid Ruckers instrument, now in the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, tuned at low Baroque pitch to enhance its burnished brilliance.
