Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

An exceptional musician, Genevieve Soly turned her passion for the harpsichord and the Baroque era into a lifelong endeavor when in 1987 she founded in Montreal the Baroque music society Les Idees heureuses. Also a musicologist, Genevieve Soly is largely responsible for rediscovering the harpsichord works of Christoph Graupner, a distinguished contemporary of J.S. Bach. In February 2001, Ms. Soly launched a musical and musicological project aimed at promoting the music of this almost forgotten composer, of whom she is currently one of the most eminent specialists. To illustrate the connections between Handel and Christoph Graupner, Kapellmeister at the court of Darmstadt, the harpsichordist Genevieve Soly performs works by Handel, taken from the Book of Harpsichord Darmstadt. This recording was made using a German harpsichord after Michael Mietke (Berlin, circa 1720), built by Matthias Griewisch (Baumenthal, 2007), belonging to Genevieve Soly.
