Masterworks & Miniatures: Organ and Harpsichord Music from Renaissance Venice

NI5931
£14.99

Details

This programme explores Italian keyboard music of the sixteenth century with works by Girolamo Diruta, Claudio Merulo, Andrea and Giovanni Gabreli, Gioseffo Guami, and Antonio Mortaro. As Richard Lester explains in his extended liner note, his own study of contemporary performance treatise, particularly that of Diruta, for correct period fingering, ornamentation and registration for these works, informs his performances of these pieces and expresses their unique character.

Reviews

WI admire this album for the way it presents plenty of rarely-played music. This is a didactic package worth having if you are interested in this repertory." American Record Guide
