Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This third double CD set completes Gilbert Rowland's survey of these Handel's groundbreaking solo keyboard music, works that began to free the form from the formal constraints of "Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gigue". Forty-plus years of recitals, appearances at major festivals in several countries, together with regular broadcasts, have helped to establish Gilbert Rowland's reputation as one of Britain's leading harpsichordists. "The standard of playing is very high indeed... a most enjoyable recording." (The Consort on Vol.1)

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
I don't want to quarrel too much with this. Rowland has completed his six-disc project, and there is some strong, heroic playing in this final set. He takes all the repeats and uses some enterprising embellishments. The Chaconne in G (422), a 17-minute piece with 62variations, is remarkably exciting here as the grand conclusion.
