Well Tempered Clavier 2
Over the course of his career, Christophe Rousset has consistently excelled - both as a harpsichordist and as the director of Les Talens Lyriques. Following on several critically acclaimed albums of keyboard music for Apart, Rousset turns to Bach's great musical testament: The Well-Tempered Clavier. Written 20 years after the first volume, the second book of this collection contains the musical and spiritual legacy of the composer. Rousset performs on a 1628 Ruckers harpsichord, one of the best examples of it's kind in the world, which has been preserved in the choteau de Versailles since 1946.
