- Pièces de Clavecin

No other music personality can so naturally be associated with 1700s French enlightenment as Jean-Philippe Rameau. No-one embodies its internal intellectual character as he does. At a time when nature was thought to be controlled by a rational order with mechanical principles Rameau's greatest achievement was to present the empirical premise of musical practice as a matter of common sense and natural law.

With the combination of reason and experience by listening Rameau shows that his method is a dialectical analysis and theory. He imagines music as a body of empirical evidence and discovers with analytical methods the constants that are clarified by hypothetical statements; the root and the idea of ??the fundamental bass, harmonies on different scale steps have different weight in the analysis, the seventh as the source of all dissonances ...

Kjell Bygdén is an accordeonist. Educated at Trossingen State College of Music (Staatliche Hochschule für Musik Trossingen) in Germany under professor Hugo Noth. He has worked as a theatre musician, soloist and chamber musician. On nosag records he earlier released nosag CD 124 Im Brechthaus together with soprano KERSTIN VIBERG.
