Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"On the surface Byrd's keyboard pieces challenge the dexterity of the player. But the real virtuosity of Byrd lies in the composers' willingness to notate the fantasies and wandering shapes of his own thought process. Charlston plays with unfailing clarity and an attractive singing tone, listening not only to the instrument but to the changing modes of development built into the music... This well-put-together, sensitively rendered portrait of Byrd's keyboard output is a treasure through and through. The tone of David Evans's harpsichords (a single manual harpsichord and a virginal are heard on this recording) is crisp and vocal." - American Record Guide
