In his debut album for Rubicon Classics, accomplished pianist Marcin Fleszar performs Rameau’s timeless Suite in A minor. Under Fleszar’s masterful touch and performed on the piano, instead on the harpsichord as is traditional, the pieces take on new colours and shadings with a cantabile quality, verging at times on songlike.
The second half of the album transports the listener to the heights of 19th-century Romanticism with Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze. The piece was inspired by his love for his soon-to-be wife, Clara Wieck, and Fleszar’s interpretation makes for a carefully crafted balance between the composer’s alter egos; from the explosive passion of Florestan to the gentle lyricism of Eusebius.
