Rameau Four

Rameau Four

This shot by Owen Daly was taken during the closing hours of the 1998 Berkeley Festival in the exhibition space he shared with John Phillips. It documents the spontaneous, once-in-a-blue-moon convergence of four John Phillips harpsichords, four players, and two sets of part books for Janine Johnson's two-keyboard arrangement of Rameau's Pieces de Clavecin en Concert. Instruments and players, from left to right:

  1. French double after 1707 Dumont, Don Simons
  2. Franco/Flemish double after 1648/1780 Ruckers/Taskin, Yuko Tanaka
  3. Italian single after 1681 Giusti, Steve Lehning
  4. French double after 1733 Blanchet, Janine Johnson.
