Brilliant Classics is recording the complete harpsichord music of Girolamo Frescobaldi, in lively and historically informed interpretations by Roberto Loreggian. This first volume contains his toccatas and partitas, which were much admired by J.S. Bach. They have never left the repertory of keyboard players and their challenges and rewards are just as stimulating today as they were for the those who eagerly snapped them up in the 17th century.
- The start of an unprecedented project A unique coupling of these works
- Includes detailed booklet notes by the Frescobaldi scholar Noel O’Regan.
- Roberto Loreggian is a renowned interpreter of Italian music of this period, whose many recordings for Brilliant have been well received by the critics.
