Notes & Reviews:

Ayros Raritas is a series of recordings focusing on rare instruments, which belong to private collections. In some instances, only a few examples exist in the world. The chosen repertoire is specifically matched to the instrument, to highlight its special qualities. The first release features a recording of an original Ruckers spinet from 1604. This instrument has miraculously survived to the present day and, after many years of research and preparation, has been restored to a playable state. It was built in Antwerp in the workshop of the brothers Joannes and Andreas Ruckers; the date 1604 can be found among the painted decoration on its soundboard. The original signature has been lost together with the jack rail and rose but, from the style of this painted decoration, we can be sure that it is typical of the early period of the instruments signed by Joannes Ruckers.
