Listen

In the press

He combines virtuoso technique and sharp intellect, underscoring the extremes of freedom and rigour that lie at the heart of these works.
BBC Music Magazine

L'interprétation de Christophe Rousset va droit au coeur.
Classica

Rousset has something special to offer here. He understands perfectly how to use overlapping notes and phrases to create an expressiveness you might not suspect possible...a world of inspiration. The Observer

Rousset is one of the finest harpsichordists working today and these readings, while never pedantic or ponderous, feel fully studied and assimilated. 
Gramophone

Rousset is unquestionably a player of impeccable and immaculate technical command, fluent and precise in touch, compelling in his choice of tempos and authoritative in his grasp of structure.
International Record Review
