ELISABETH JACQUET DE LA GUERRE, L'Inconstante
Marie van Rhijn
Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre finally shares the stage with Chambonnières and Couperin in the discography devoted to the 17th century harpsichord. That's what the scholar booklet of Marie van Rhijn's new album tells us. Almost unknown nowadays, the composer enjoyed a great reputation during her lifetime. And for good reason. Her inspired compositions exploit all the registers of the harpsichord, giving generosity and brightness to her works.
In her second solo album, Marie van Rhijn continues the exploration of the "Grand Siècle" on a beautiful period harpsichord, the same as in the previous recording. Carried by her programme, the musician has written a "double" for one of the minuets, in the manner of Elizabeth Jacquet de La Guerre of course. Thus fresh wind blows through this repertoire.
