Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Nearly all of Daniel Purcell's surviving solo harpsichord music consists of arrangements, the only clear exception being the short Toccata, a brief essay in the style of the preludes from Henry Purcell's harpsichord suites. The Suite is a simple but effective arrangement of movements from the composer's own suite

BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
This disc makes an important contribution to our understanding of Daniel Purcell, younger cousin of the illustrious Henry...They are attractive pieces, transparently scored, though most of them lack development and breadth...Hazel Brooks and harpsichordist David Pollock give competent performances, Brooks's straight and sinewy sound informed by her experience of playing medieval fiddle.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Daniel Purcell lived on for more than 20 years after Henry's death, and his musical style developed accordingly. Most of the works here are sonatas of the baroque style that became popular in England only around 1700. If you are a serious collector, you will not want to miss this disc. These are charming and elegant works, played with style on violin and harpsichord. Most are the multi-movement sonatas familiar from the baroque era. This is a wonderful program with good notes and fine sound.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2013
Charming if not memorable, most of the pieces are short and make relatively modest demands on the performers, so were probably intended mainly for private music-making...Brooks, who is an accomplished and knowledgeable performer, contributes remarkably straight-toned readings with minimal rhetoric and ornamentation, while Pollock pursues a more expressive and stylish approach
