Le Mystère: Two Pieces

1. Le Mystère; 2. Le Rappel de l'humanité. A tribute to Couperin and Rameau.

ABRSM grade 7. Approximately 6 minutes.

Excellent pieces. Christopher Hogwood.

"Raymond Head, another composer with a wonderful feel for the harpsichord. Le Mystère is atonal, mysterious, with notes randomly disappearing up higher and higher, until the whole coalesces upon an insistence on a single note. In Le rappel de l'humanité an appealingly offbeat cheekiness alternates with a perpetuum mobile feel."   Alice McVeigh, Music and Vision
