Harpsichord, Liner Notes, Primary Artist.
Sophie Yates has a longstanding reputation as a superb harpsichord player, yet even here in this early (1995) recording, her expertise shines through. I generally go for lively harpsichord pieces, so for me the highlights are Le Cyclopes (6), Le Coucou (12), and Keyboard Sonata in A Major (15). Of these, Le Cyclopes is one of the best renditions of I've heard anywhere. That said, Sophie Yates plays with terrific dexterity and subtlety throughout, making the whole album an enjoyable listen. The recordings are crisp and clear, so no complaints there. The cover shows François Boucher's. It is like harp music with added punch and spirit. This collection includes many harpsichord standards, including by Couperin, Handel and Bach. 2 people found this helpful.

Sophie Yates – harpsichord. Chandos Chaconne 0644. Sophie Yates – harpsichord. Chandos Chaconne 0669. With the exception of the final Chaconne of the second set, these discs contain the two sets of suites of 1720 and 1733 which are Handel’s most important keyboard music. It is an impressive achievement, with stylish harpsichord playing and a real sense of the energy and originality of these works. Repeats are taken, mostly with sensible ornamentation which never strays into tastelessness or exaggeration, and notes inégales are introduced in small amounts, especially in the allemandes, and with commendable moderation – a good thing, since we have little evidence about the extent to which Handel was influenced by this practice.
