Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

During the 18th century it became common for Italian composers, whose main instrument was not the keyboard, to produce collections of harpsichord music. Geminiani was one of several musicians to embrace this. Geminiani was a composer capable of great originality and beauty. With Lanfranco's intelligent and engaging performance, there is little doubt that the listener will be persuaded towards a greater appreciation of his music.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Francesca Lanfranco is adept at using special effects like the bleeding of one note or chord into the next (overholding) to create richness and sustained sounds on the harpsichord. Her passagework is imbued with a sense of risk and excitement. If the Frank Hubbard (1920-76) harpsichord heard on this recording was indeed built by Pascal Taskin (1723-93) as the back of this release might lead us to believe, then musicologists will have to prove the existence of an 18th Century time machine.
