JS Bach in the Italian Style

ACD509
£14.99

Details

A bright and beautiful baroque that has been performed on a fine copy of Christian Zell’s spectacular 1728 instrument. The keyboard builder, Paul Downie, built a close replica- one of the most lavishly decorated and sumptuous sounding of the extant German harpsichords. Within this unique album, the relationship between the instrument and performer is brought to life in this recording of eighteenth-century German harpsichord music.

Reviews

"A fine disc, this, of Bach’s Italianate keyboard works, but it is hard to determine which is its most compelling attraction, the lyrical and historically sensitive performer, or the lyrical and historically sensitive instrument he plays." Gavin Dixon (Classical Music journalist and writer).
