Style Fantastique – Le Concert Brise

To record this CD by ensemble Le Concert Brisé (dir. William Dongois) we went to Neuchatel/Switzerland. Actually it is a real live recording – the only one on the label so far. The ensemble played three concerts on three consecutive days in the museum of art and history, as they happen to have an original Ruckers harpsichord from 1632 there, which is a most beautiful instrument that I have used for another recording two years later as well. They played those three concerts in a way that each program would be different, but still every piece would appear twice during the whole time, so that we had some choice for the editing later. The music is beautiful, quiet and soothing, and the photos, taken by Dominika Bonk at the shores of the Neuchatel lake, add perfectly to this atmosphere. The recording work was done together with my friend and colleague Johannes Wallbrecher. (JN)
