Wanda Landowska - Byrd · Purcell · Rameau · Couperin · Pachelbel · Scarlatti · Francisque - Musique Ancienne FLAC album

Wanda " Landowska the eaerly keyboard music came back into vogue and people began to have interest in the harpsichord and its almost unknown repertoire ! She was the first person to record . Bach's Goldberg Variations (BWV 988) on the harpsichord (1931). Wanda Landowska was born in Warsaw, where her father was a lawyer, and her mother a linguist who translated Mark Twain into Polish. She began playing piano at the age of four, and studied at the Warsaw Conservatory with Kleczynski and Michalowski. Deeply interested in musicology, and particularly in the works of . Bach, François Couperin and Rameau, she toured the museums of Europe looking at original keyboard instruments; she acquired old instruments and had new ones made at her request by Pleyel and Company. These were large, heavily-built harpsichords with a 16-foot stop and owed much to piano construction.

The great Harpsichordist Wanda Landowska has inscribed a fine copy of her book "Musique Ancienne. The legendary interpreter has written in her signature purple ink: "A la Princesse Louis de Lichtenstein, en hommage de sympa respecteuse et sincere reconnaissance - Wanda Landowska, Vienne 1910. Moderate chipping to cover edges, first marbled inside page loose but attached  . Landowska was born in Warsaw, w her father was a lawyer, and her mother a linguist who translated Mark Twain into Polish. She also studied composition with Heinrich Urban in Berlin.

Performer: Wanda Landowska. Composer: Francois Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau. Audio CD (February 5, 2002). Landowska is probably most closely associated with the music of Bach and Scarlatti, but this album is a rare opportunity to hear her apply her magnificent artistry to the French repertoire, and she doesn't disappoint. I have always found the French tradition rather removed from the German/Austrian and Italian schools of composition, and its style can be elusive. Landowska obviously understood it. Purists have difficulty with the instrument Landowska played, which is a modern "revival" instrument, but her superb musicianship transcends such considerations for me.
