The performer:
Luc Beausejour is an exceptional Canadian harpsichordist and organist with a very active concertizing career. He has performed as a soloist in North and South America as well as in Europe. He was named "2003 Performer of the Year" by the Conseil Quecois de la Musique and has won Felix awards for two different recordings at the Gala de l'ADISQ. He was also awarded the Erwin Bodky prize of the Cambridge Society for Early Music. His love of Bach's music has led him to perform the works for harpsichord and for organ almost in their entirety. Beausejour has carried out over 35 recording projects, either as soloist or as musical director. Since 1994, he has been the artistic director of the ensemble Clavecin en Concert. He teaches at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montreal and at the Universite de Montreal. He is never short of ideas when it comes to offering concert programs imbued with authenticity and refinement. "The naturalness of his harpsichord playing, the remarkable attention he gives to proportions and to a singing quality have made him a one-of-a-kind artist." (Le Devoir)


Program description:

Inspired by two famous pieces of bird-watching from Rameau's Pieces de clavecin of 1724 �?????�????�???�??�?�¢?? Le Rappel des Oiseaux (The Calling of the Birds) and La Poule (The Hen) - Luc Beausejour has collected a mixed flock of other bird-pieces from the late French Baroque period. In addition to Rameau, the composers are Couperin, d'Agincourt, Daquin, Durnel, Duphly, Veras, Dandrieu and Fevrier. The birds include amorous turtle doves, swallows, warblers, as well as some solitary singers and barnyard familiars: nightingale and cuckoo, frightened finch, swallow, young chicken, and hen.
