Just Opened - Playlist basics Old & New



From Rameau to Mozart to Dvorak to Janacek - Baroque to Modern, and adding new works for guitar from a living composer... we bring you basics from every time period1

RAMEAU
Pieces de Clavcin en Concert
Ensemble Baroque Nouveau
REFERENCE RECORDINGS 118
ISBN #0 30911 11182 3
Review and more info.
A rare recording of Rameau by an American ensemble.  Due to Rameau's re-use of melodies from his keyboard works into chamber works, they always have a familiar feeling, and this recording maintains the crispness of the solo works in a small chamber group of early instruments.  Each member of this ensemble is highly accomplished, their combined resumes amount to a "who's who" and a "what's what" of Early Music.

A pleasing combination of a few new works for solo guitar, along with many beloved traditional favorites from this established mature artist known as a teacher and music editor in addition to being a performer.  Rinehart has been recognized and performed at guitar festivals internationally in addition to studying lute in England.  The works on this CD are chosen to demonstrate the intimate, personal side of the guitar, and is dedicated to his wife.
