Notes & Reviews:

Alena Hoenigová counts as one of the best Czech experts for early music on keyboard instruments. A teacher at the Bale Schola Cantorum, she has worked with a variety of early music and contemporary groups.

Music by celebrated bohemian piano virtuoso and composer Jan Ladislav Dussek played on original fortepiano Broadwood; with his inventor John Broadwood was Dussek closely connected. His style was described by contemporary critics with words as truly extravagant, full of luxuriant imagination, brilliant or unbelievable inventive in terms of melody and harmony.
