Notes & Reviews:

Andrea Gabrieli, uncle and mentor to the unjustly more famous Giovanni, was the first true genius of the Italian keyboard school. Besides an important corpus of vocal music, this organist of San Marco composed complex monothematic ricercars, turning the form into the ancestor of the fugue; as well as brilliant preambula and toccatas, gorgeously ornamented arrangements of madrigals and chansons, and a sparking passamezzo. Glen Wilson performs a selection of these on copies of a 16th-century Italian harpsichord and spinetta.

"Here is a generous selection of Andrea Gabrieli's keyboard works played on harpsichord and spinet. All of the forms Gabrieli worked in are represented: preludes. Ricercars, and pieces based on songs and dances. On the one hand, Gabrieli can be highly didactic in his presentation of musical material and its evolution. On the other hand there is a strong sense of the ineffable in his music; sometimes the voices are so eerily independent that one seems to possess self awareness. Wilson is a fine advocate for these rarely heard treasures of keyboard literature."-American Record Guide
