“Laurent Stewart - Behind this discret young man stands a very stylish musician...“ Renaud Machart - Le Monde
Willi Apel, one of the great twentieth-century experts on harpsichord music, declared: ‘With d’Anglebert, French keyboard music reaches its highest point of Baroque magnificence and fulness. His skill in continuing a melody, contrapuntally interweaving voices, concatenating harmonies by way of suspensions, and always using meaningful figures as ornaments brings to a final culmination and maturity what his teacher, Chambonnières, began . . .’
Laurent Stewart chose to record at la Salle Varèse du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique of Lyon, on his harpsichord copie of a Rückers 1638 « petit ravalement ». The sumptuous bass of this harpsichord underlines d’Anglebert’s music magnificently.
Laurent Stewart received outstanding reviews of his records made with the label Pierre Verany in the 90s : Louis Couperin Diapason d’or 1996, Gibbons/Byrd Diapason d’or 1995, Frescobaldi best record of 1994 by Le Monde. This very good harpsichordist, trained by Jos van Immerseel offered Zig-Zag Territoires to record d’Anglebert.
