|New from||Used from|
Audio CD, August 1, 2002
This album includes all the known French unmeasured harpsichord preludes of the seventeenth century. This music is written without indication of meter or rhythm, and is interpreted by the player in an improvisatory style. Almost all of the major French composers of this period have left some of these preludes, and many anonymous ones also exist.
