Musician's or Publisher's Notes

Originally published in 1724 for the harpsichord, Rameau’s compositional brilliance can be heard in the artful contrast of a hypnotic harmonic stagnancy against the swiftly flowing harmonic changes which evoke the movements and sounds of birds in Le Rappel des Oiseaux (The Call of the Birds) while Musette en Rondeau, and Tambourin display an almost continuous use of the left hand drone in E major and E minor.      Samuel Deason
