Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide
Sweelinck's keyboard oeuvre is well represented here in a program that includes contrapuntal pieces, variations on secular songs, and religious music. Rotaru is a nimble and expressive player.

Fanfare
The harpsichord is a Ruckers copy by Fred Bettenhuasen of Haarlem, and it is the perfect choice for the music. Although no details are given, I presume from the sound that it's a small, single-manual instrument with two eight-foot registers. The recorded sound leaves nothing to be desired. Urgently recommended

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St. Johannis-Kirche Arenshorst, Germany (07/06/2010-07/08/2010).
