In addition to this CD by Gustav Leonhardt performing keyboard works of Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) on the harpsichord, I own one other Leonhardt recording of the works of this neglected composer, a 25-year-old LP on the Harmonia Mundi label which I've been wearing out lately. Wanting to expand my collection a bit, I elected to purchase this CD which I am thrilled with. The playing is impeccable, Leonhardt's reputation is immaculate and he's simply a god as a keyboard musician…

The Purcell Quartet (Catherine Mackintosh, Catherine Weiss - violin | Richard Boothby - bass viol | Robert Woolley - harpsichord)

In the late seventeenth century Hamburg was the most cosmopolitan city in Germany. It was one of the first cities outside Italy to have public concertos and an opera house. Johann Adam Reincken, organist at the Katharinenkirche from 1663, exemplified Hamburg’s sophisticated, proud culture. […] Reincken was renowned as an improviser and, perhaps because he jealously guarded his art, he committed little keyboard music to paper. Instead the main item in Reincken’s surviving output is Hortus musicus, his 1687 set of six partitas for two violins, viola da gamba and continuo.

The portrait of John Bull on the cover of this two-CD U.S. release gives an idea for the uninitiated of what to expect from the composer's music: it's intense, single-minded, and even a bit demonic (although the hourglass topped with a skull with a bone in its mouth is apparently an alchemical symbol). Bull was, in the words of an unidentified writer quoted by harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, "the Liszt of the virginals." The most immediately apparent feature of his music is extreme virtuosity, on display especially in the mind-boggling set of variations entitled Walsingham (CD 1, track 8) and in the galliards of the pavan-galliard pairs. But the opposite pole in Bull's style exerts just as strong a pull: he is fascinated by strict polyphony by what would be called harmonic progressions, and by the close study of the implications contained within small musical units. As spectacular in their way as the keyboard fireworks are, the three separate settings of a tune called Why Ask You? on CD 2 are marvelous explorations of compressed musical gestures.
