Notes & Reviews:

The eminent composer/harpsichordist /organist Barbara Harbach performs a program of music for harpsichord by American composers Arnold Rosner and Daniel Pinkham. Ms. Harbach has toured extensively through the U.S., Canada and abroad as a concert organist and harpsichordist. She is involved in the research, editing, publication and recording of manuscripts of 18th century keyboard composers and women composers. She is on the faculty of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Pinkham's Partita for Harpsichord (1964) is conceived on a grand scale. It is half an hour long and in six movements. Pinkham was fond of counterpoint, and several movements offer his take on classic polyphonic techniques like canon and fugue. Other movements are lyrical. The Andante, with its syncopations and melancholy minor seconds, is bluesy. The second-to-last movement, a Scherzo and Trio, shows the harpsichord at its most sparkly. Pinkham wrote excellently for the harpsichord - which he played. Harbach plays with great conviction. People interested in 20th century harpsichord music will be overjoyed to hear this superb release.
