Product Description

Georg Friedrich Handel is mostly known today for his vocal music, especially his oratorios and operas. Even though he was a prolific composer of keyboard music these works still have to be discovered to be fully appreciated. Harpsichordist Geneviève Soly delights us by performing this repertoire through a new point of view: an historical exchange between composers of the same era, Handel and Christoph Graupner. A trip to Darmstadt in music and time.

Georg Friedrich Handel est reconnu de nos jours principalement comme un compositeur de musique vocale, il n'y qu'à penser à ses oratorios et opéras. Bien qu'auteur d'un important corpus de musique pour clavier, ses oeuvres sont encore à découvrir et apprécier. La claveciniste Geneviève Soly nous fait le bonheur d'interpréter ce répertoire, mais sous un nouveau jour : un échange historique entre deux contemporains, Handel et Christoph Graupner. Un voyage autant musical que temporel à Darmstadt.

Good, enjoyable album of music from the "Darmstadt Harpsichord Book" Nov. 1 2011
By G.C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album features 7 works for harpsichord, 6 of which are taken from the "Darmstadt Harpsichord Book" (DHB) housed in the university and municipal library ("Universitats- und Landesbibliothek") of the same city, with 5 of those works by Handel, and the 6th by Christoph Graupner. The harpsichordist on this recording, Genevieve Soly, is a scholar on the DHB and on the music of Graupner. She also contributed the liner notes on this recording, and wears her learning lightly there. She also plays well in all the works.

Soly mentions in her notes that the CD contains 20 of the 29 Handel works in the DHB. Given that I wrote that there are 7 compositions on this album, the "20" could be partly explained away by the fact that the CD has 22 tracks, and 1 is of the Graupner work. However, this still leaves 21 tracks, so I'm not sure how to account for the number "20". In addition, the running time is just around 52 minutes, so one wonders how long the remaining "9 works" take, if they were too long to fit everything on 1 CD.

But pedantic points aside, for people interested in Handel and harpsichord music, this is a good album.
