The page manuscript has been inherited by the present owners in from the dissolved Forestieri-Steiner fund and constitutes an additional hand-written source of 18th century French harpsichord music. An early assessment of the Forestieri-Steiner manuscript suggests that the whole book should have been assembled for personal use by a single musician, probably a close friend, a colleague or a pupil of Louis Marchand.
This assessment is supported by the presence of unpublished works to be undoubtedly attributed to Louis Marchand and his school [Rosenthal, ]. The manuscript includes a series of nineteen pieces not known from other sources or registered in public or private accessible archives and collections.
His fame was spread well outside the French borders, and accompanied him during the four years of travel throughout Germany he was forced to Mahler* - Christa Ludwig, Sir Adrian Boult Conducts The Philharmonia Orchestra - Kindertotenlieder / in after a dramatic confrontation with King Louis XIV during a public musical event in Paris [Marpurg, ].
The rest of his remaining output is made up of a limited number of organ pieces, all composed before No other keyboard music by Marchand survives, including the largest part of the five organ books. Contemporary chronicles report that he was an excellent teacher, an outstanding performer and a brilliant improviser at Arrigo Cappelletti - Ananda harpsichord.
In addition, the variety of keyboard instruments he kept at home during the last years of his life is surprisingly long. The inventory made by Pièces Du 6ème Ton - Louis Marchand - Jean-Baptiste Robin - LOeuvre Pour Orgue wife after his death includes, among other instruments, three harpsichords and seven spinets. In this context, it shall not therefore be considered surprising that other works by Marchand are finally being rediscovered today.
The order of the pieces as presented in this recording however differs from the original sequence of the manuscript. This choice has been autonomously made by the performer in order to maximise formal homogeneity and consequent musical impact. A more accurate scrutiny of the structure of the Livre reveals complex stratifications of music, attributions and composition dates [Rosenthal, ]. Roughly, the Livre may be subdivided into two different groups of Pièces Du 6ème Ton - Louis Marchand - Jean-Baptiste Robin - LOeuvre Pour Orgue.
Les Sirenes It is likely that all these pieces were written in different periods before Marchand left France, i. This set is less homogeneous in style than the first, and it includes compositions of different origin, including possible transcriptions from chamber music settings. The authorship of this second section of the Livre is doubtful. Stylistic evidence leads one to consider a few pieces, such as the bi-partite?
Les Regards has the bass line figured, suggesting a possible performance in trio. It is questionable whether these works derive from late unpublished compositions by Marchand rather than late elaborations on his works or, alternatively, entirely spurious additions.
