Following the fine critical praise for his pioneering recording of the complete Harpsichord Suites of G.F. Handel, Gilbert Rowland moves to the lesser known but equally inspired Johann Mattheson (1681-1764) who composed these suites in 1714. Although generally following the then current Dance Suite format used so much by Bach, Handel and others, Mattheson created variety with different dances (such as the Tocatine) and varying numbers of movements. Certainly very musical and original, these Suites deserve to be considered on a level with those of Handel at the very least. Masterful performances by Gilbert Rowland who plays a 2-manual French-style instruments by Andrew Wooderson (2005) after an original from 1750 by Goemans.

Froberger was one of the most humane composers of the 17th century, and it would be a cold player indeed who did not respond to the searching expressiveness not only of his allemande-form meditations and lamentations, but of many other movements as well. Wilson does not fail them. A pupil of Leonhardt (himself a great Froberger player), he seeks a similar ‘delicate balance of freedom and rigour’, resulting in deeply considered interpretations, never hurried or frivolous, but with each note given proper placing and weight.

German Baroque composer Johann Jacob Froberger was also a renowned organist and possibly the most famous keyboard virtuoso of the mid-17th century. This extensive double album of his elegant, colourful and intricately expressive dance music in the French lutestyle, arranged in chronological order, is the first to employ all available sources in an original edition by harpsichordist Glen Wilson.

Listeners familiar with other recordings in Masaaki Suzuki's ongoing traversal of Bach's solo keyboard works may find his performances of the Partitas somewhat of an anomaly. For instance, the sharply delineated juxtapositions of tempos that made his Fantasias and Fugues program so thrilling (type Q3840 in Search Reviews) are nowhere to be heard here. The interpretive agenda this time is much subtler and decidedly more introverted.

When the ensemble Amarillis focuses on Handel, the musicians reinvent the genre of the baroque suite. They take advantage of their variable geometry formation to concoct a joyous musical ballet in homage to the most Italian of the English composers. No voice here, and yet what lyricism in these pages! Thanks to transcriptions that constantly renew the instrumentation of the program, the performers, led by Héloïse Gaillard (flute) and Violaine Cochard (harpsichord), emphasize the colours of this contrasting and special anthology of Handels Suites and Trio Sonatas.

Possibly, like me, the first time you may ever have met the name of Forqueray was when you first discovered the ‘Pièces de Clavecin en concerts’ by Rameau. In those chamber works, enlargements of solo harpsichord pieces, Rameau invariably pays tribute to some of his most interesting contemporaries.

Leading early music expert Winsome Evans presents the final chapter in her ground-breaking project to transcribe and record Bach’s solo instrumental works for the harpsichord, with the Six Cello Suites and Partita for Solo Flute. Evans’ project, some 30 years in the making, is based on evidence that Bach himself played his solo instrumental works on the keyboard – including the statement of a former student that Bach often played the solo violin and cello works ‘on the clavier, adding as much in the nature of harmony as he found necessary’. The harmonies added by Evans to the solo works are inspired by methods from Bach’s own time.

A French overture necessarily preceded every performance mounted at the French court in the late 17th century. As developed by Lully, this typically Baroque entrance music fit for the King was played by fairly large forces. Characterized by double-dotted rhythms, the solemn, stately outer sections framed a fugal allegro and flaunted, as it were, royal dignity, grace and power.
