Currently listening to his Bach transcriptions disc on Spotify. I don’t often follow harpsichordists (and even then they’re all French), but I find this mofo particuarly impressive. He has a kind of hipster image about him, but I just really like his playing. I’ve missed a lot of chances to hear him live, but I really want the first time I hear him to be solo. At least he’s from Paris, and plays here often. In the past, I’ve been a bit sceptical about the harpsichord as a concert instrument, since you can often barely hear it, but in a hall like Cortot (where he played a solo recital in December), it should be fine, at least from the first couple of rows.
Finally, Brahms’ arrangement of the Chaconne sounds worthwhile, although it probably only works in the studio.
I’ve watched some of his videos on da tube. I really liked them. He has this Hipster vibe, but it works

I heard him play the Chaconne on some BBC in concert Wigmore Hall stream and was very impressed.
