Born in 1964 the French harpsichordist, Pierre Hantaï, gave his first concerts at an early age, alone or with his brothers Marc and Jérôme. He then spent two years studying in Amsterdam with Gustav Leonhardt, who subsequently invited him to perform under his direction. In 1983 Hantaï scored his first major triumph through taking first prize at the International Bach-Handel Competition of Bruges in Belgium; since then, Hantaï has collected an impressive number of honours and awards.
“…the selection provides variety and an opportunity to really hear the full range of the instrument. Some may find some of the pointing in the moderately paced pieces a little precious, but these are for the most part persuasive and winning performances.”
