JS Bach – Italian Concerto (DXL 1017)
Terence Charlston's mastery of historical performance practice and virtuoso technique marry to produce this truely outstanding CD of sparkling harpsichord repertoire. Including the Chomatic Fantasia and Fugue (BWV 903) and also the well known Italian Concerto (BWV 971), this disc contains some of Bach’s key compositions for keyboard and some of his charming smaller-scale works.
"Charlston plays with flair and naturally expressive timing and, as occasioned in the early Aria Variata BWV 989, with touching serenity. With a recording that finely captures the instrument's bite while avoiding thundering mechanical noise, even Beecham might have approved" Edward Bhesania, CD of the Week, The Observer "musically shaped and delivered by one who obviously knows well how to make the best use of a realy sensitively-weighted actioned and amplified harpsichord copy. I have been drawn by the completely persuasive playing of the music into placing it immediately among my most favoured Bach harpsichord discs."
