Keyboards are transcription instruments par excellence, and the harpsichord is no exception: works for lute, viola da gamba, and even orchestral or operatic works have been appropriated by it. In this recital of French music, Mélisande McNabney, one of the finest young harpsichordists of her generation, performs some well-known and well-loved pieces for harpsichord, including Rameau’s Les trois mains and Gavotte et 6 doubles, along with transcriptions from the period and a few adaptations of her own.

This concert also marks the release of Mélisande McNabney’s first solo album on the Atma Classique label.
