La Duchesse is a free and a very personal harpsichord improvisation project started in October 2019 to express the affetto or spirit of a day after my daily routine has been taken care of.
These recordings have not been cut or edited and are presented complete from the beginning to end as such are a true reflection of spontaneous musical creativity. Almost all of them (except two video) were recorded 11 pm to 3 am in complete darkness (where i was unable to see anything including the keys).
The instrument is a original french harpsichord from the end of XVII century borrowed from a great friend. More than 70 tracks were created throughout the process. Below i would like to share some of my personal files never, which have never been published before.
I suggest closing your eyes and listening to it freely as a form of meditation, allowing yourselves to travel through the harmonies like a nobleman in XVII century who, returning home tired after a day of work, requests some music to help in relaxing his mind.
La Réunion is the only piece of this project for two harpsichords. The second one was included digitally later.
La Tranquilité is a piece improvised upon request for a friend who has insomnia.
Le Bon Sommeil is the continuation of La Tranquilité, a piece to be listen lying on the bed for sleeping.
Le Rêve is the only piece of this project played on the piano.
