"Airs d'opéra accommodés pour le clavecin..." by Balbastre made by transcriptions of opera music by Rameau, Rebel, Mondoville, Ferrand, Monsigny...
harpsichord works by Royer (Allemande, La Sensible, La marche des Scythes)
This collection appears as an anthology of famous plays ranked in no apparent order: they are grouped neither by key, by composer or chronological order, and passages from one opera do not necessarily follow one after the other. You can imagine that everyone picked and chose their favorite arias to play in their living room.The transcription by Balbastre remains fairly close to the original text, often written in two parts, but it gives an orchestral color by doubling octaves in the left hand and adding ornaments in the right hand. This form of writing gives us few opportunities to "fill" the inner parts like a continuo does.Put next to this collection, the pieces of Nicolas Pancrace Royer, best known today, are from his own operas, and show a very different approach of transcription. Royer re-writes his proper orchestral music in a style very closed to the one used for keyboard. The progams ends with the formidable "Marche des Scythes"...

Le Concert Spirituel, association of public concerts created in 1725 at The Tuileries in Paris, was a meeting place for innovation and creation for several decades. So it's no coincidence that the composers on this record passed each other in this place: if Nicolas Royer Pancras was its director from 1748 to 1754, Mondonville, Rebel, Rameau and others can be found in the archives of programs, and we also find Claude Balbastre playing his organ transcription of the overture of Pygmalion by Rameau, May 29, 1755.

This recording presents Claude Balbastre transcriptions from a masnuscript kept at Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris : “Collection of arias selected from several operas accommodated for the harpsichord” featuring forty arias by French composers and two by Italian composers, and other music pieces including a trio and a sonata copied by another hand. Besides Rameau, the most frequently cited in this collection, we meet Mondonville, Ferrand, Rebel, Rousseau, Dauvergne, Monsigny, composers some of whom violently disagreed during the quarrel of the Buffoons which ended in 1754 with the cover version of Castor and Pollux.
