Notes & Reviews:

This new release comes to us from the winner of the 2015 Musica Antiqua Festival in Bruges, Justin Taylor. The festival is one of the most celebrated harpsichord competitions in the world, and has honored some of the world's best performers such as Scott Ross, Christophe Roust, Pierre Hantai, and more. This program me of music comes from the Forqueray family, Antoine, Michel, Jean-Baptiste, and others, all of which are part of a dynasty of French composers, gambists, and organists. This recital, in addition to painting a portrait of one of the most unique families in music, reflects on the issue of transcription. These suites, which are performed here on the harpsichord, were originally composed for the viola da gamba. This transfer from one instrument to another allows us to focus on the true originality of this music.
