David Pollock: The French Harpsichord

David Pollock: The French Harpsichord
ID: LIR006
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Harpsichord

17th & 18th century French harpsichord music on a Ruckers reproduction instrument.

On this CD David Pollock has chosen a programme that reveals much of the evolution of the French tradition of harpsichord music. It is recorded on a copy of a harpsichord made in 1636 by Andreas Ruckers and given a characteristic ravalement by Henri Hemsch in 1763. It was built by Anne and Ian Tucker, and as well as the characteristic sound of the instrument, it recreates the decorative scheme: the pastoral scene on the interior of the lid dates from before the ravalement, while the mythological scenes painted on the exterior are eighteenth century. The original - still playable - is thought to have belonged to the House of Savoy until 1900, and now forms part of the Cobbe Collection at Hatchlands.

For the music David has chosen a programme that reveals much of the evolution of the diverse French harpsichord tradition, beginning with Jacques Champion de Chambonnières, one of the most important early French harpsichordists, whose influence spread beyond Paris, and moving through his protegés Couperin (Louis) and D’Anglebert, whose music synthesised the various musical styles spreading across the continent, helping to create a definitive French sound. Le Roux and Francois Couperin further developed the style, exploring the harpsichord’s emotional and sonorous capabilities, and Royer, who “brings up the rear” shows that the style had become refined and distinctive in its ornamentation, its expressiveness, its structure and its technique.

David Pollock - O Mistris Myne - The English Virginals

David Pollock - O Mistris Myne - The English Virginals
ID: LIR005
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

150 years of English virginals music
Classical Periods: Baroque, Medieval, Renaissance

For this CD David has chosen a programme which reflects the social and political changes taking place in Britain through the 16th and 17th centuries, and which explores the different influences on the repertoire of the virginal, an instrument which was a major part of musical life at that time. Through a chronological survey, he also focuses our attention on the development of the instrument itself and how it adapted to the demands of the changing repertoire.

David makes particular use of the Arpichordium, or ‘bray’ stop: a batten parallel with the bridge, in which are fixed a set of metal hooks that touch the strings when the stop is engaged, resulting in a colourful ‘buzzing’ sound.

The instrument used in this recording was made by Ian Tucker, and is a Muselar virginal, an exact replica of one made in Antwerp in 1620, by Andreas Ruckers.

Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod

Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod
ID: LIR021
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Harpsichord

A recording featuring some of the finest works to emerge from the musical society of early 18th-century Hamburg, including some Handel ‘favourites’, Mattheson’s delightful 3rd suite, and a rare chance to hear the work of Graupner, incredibly prolific in his output, but not yet achieving the recognition that he deserves. The Partita on this disc demonstrates admirably how well his works sit alongside those of his more famous contemporaries.

Michele Benuzzi studied harpsichord with Ottavio Dantone and obtained the harpsichord Performing Diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. He is noted for the intelligence and sensitivity of his interpretations, and for the extraordinary tonal qualities he obtains from the harpsichord.

Music from the age of Louis XIV - John Kitchen, harpsichord

Music from the age of Louis XIV - John Kitchen, harpsichord
ID: DCD34109
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Harpsichord

John Kitchen continues his much-lauded series of recordings of the world-famous collections of keyboard instruments in St Cecilia's Hall - Scotland's oldest purpose-built concert hall - with a programme specially designed to highlight the unique qualities of the 1755 double-manual harpsichord by Luigi Baillon.

Built in Cyteux, Burgundy, it has a very different sound from Parisian instruments of the time; cleaner and brighter in tone, it is the perfect vehicle for Kitchen's subtly nuanced playing, which brings the sophistication of the period to new life.

The familiarity born of Kitchen's daily experience with the Edinburgh collections and their setting shines through these performances.
