Is it Rameau or is it Scarlatti? Bertrand Cuiller presents a pro­gramme with pieces by Jean-Philippe Rameau and sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti that seem so sim­i­lar in terms of form, tech­nique and sound that it is hard to doubt the con­nec­tion between the two musi­cians. Cuiller con­fronts the styles of the two mas­ters with one anoth­er and makes sev­er­al dis­turb­ing dis­cov­er­ies. The ques­tion is: was Scarlatti inspired by read­ing Rameau’s music? Or did Rameau learn his tech­ni­cal tricks from Scarlatti? Come and lis­ten and judge for yourself!
