Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Johann Wilhelm Hässler was a great and famous keyboard virtuoso in the second half of the 18th century. His style forms a bridge between the Baroque and the early Classical era, a period of "Sturm und Drang", highly virtuosic in its expression of feelings and character. In this new premiere recording, Harpsichordist Michele Benuzzi undertook thorough research into this music before he prepared the present edition.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Harpsichordist Michele Benuzzi delivers the music with intelligence and enthusiasm. He plays on a lovely harpsichord built by Robert Falkener in 1773 (Russell Collection, Edinburgh).
