“Being someone who is rather awful at dancing, the only way I can explore the medium of dance is through music making! This programme idea came about from two contrasting elements: my love of Rameau’s Gavotte & Doubles and Ravel’s La Valse. … Seeing as dance is often collaborative I am thrilled to have been joined by the wonderful pianist Alexandre Tharaud in some eclectic, lesser known works by Reynaldo Hahn. I am thrilled to release this project!” –Martin James Bartlett

A selection of French repertoire from the Baroque to Ravel and Hahn. Includes Rameau’s Gavotte & Six Double sand Suite in A minor; Couperin’s Les Barricades Mystérieuses and Rondeau; and Ravel’s La Valse.

“This showcases an outstanding keyboard talent at the top of his game in repertoire that he clearly has an affinity and fondness for.”-Gramophone on his 2022 album of Rachmaninov and Gershwin.
