17th & 18th century French harpsichord music on a Ruckers reproduction instrument.

On this CD David Pollock has chosen a programme that reveals much of the evolution of the French tradition of harpsichord music. It is recorded on a copy of a harpsichord made in 1636 by Andreas Ruckers and given a characteristic ravalement by Henri Hemsch in 1763. It was built by Anne and Ian Tucker, and as well as the characteristic sound of the instrument, it recreates the decorative scheme: the pastoral scene on the interior of the lid dates from before the ravalement, while the mythological scenes painted on the exterior are eighteenth century. The original - still playable - is thought to have belonged to the House of Savoy until 1900, and now forms part of the Cobbe Collection at Hatchlands.

For the music David has chosen a programme that reveals much of the evolution of the diverse French harpsichord tradition, beginning with Jacques Champion de Chambonnières, one of the most important early French harpsichordists, whose influence spread beyond Paris, and moving through his protegés Couperin (Louis) and D’Anglebert, whose music synthesised the various musical styles spreading across the continent, helping to create a definitive French sound. Le Roux and Francois Couperin further developed the style, exploring the harpsichord’s emotional and sonorous capabilities, and Royer, who “brings up the rear” shows that the style had become refined and distinctive in its ornamentation, its expressiveness, its structure and its technique.

David Pollock - O Mistris Myne - The English Virginals

David Pollock - O Mistris Myne - The English Virginals
ID: LIR005
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

150 years of English virginals music
Classical Periods: Baroque, Medieval, Renaissance

For this CD David has chosen a programme which reflects the social and political changes taking place in Britain through the 16th and 17th centuries, and which explores the different influences on the repertoire of the virginal, an instrument which was a major part of musical life at that time. Through a chronological survey, he also focuses our attention on the development of the instrument itself and how it adapted to the demands of the changing repertoire.

David makes particular use of the Arpichordium, or ‘bray’ stop: a batten parallel with the bridge, in which are fixed a set of metal hooks that touch the strings when the stop is engaged, resulting in a colourful ‘buzzing’ sound.

The instrument used in this recording was made by Ian Tucker, and is a Muselar virginal, an exact replica of one made in Antwerp in 1620, by Andreas Ruckers.

The saxophone depicts a bird running, singing, and flying in Takashi Yoshimatsu’s Fuzzy Bird Sonata.
Paule Maurice’s music gives us her insight to the countryside of the Provence region of France.
We hear the distinctive flavours of Spain, Russia, France, Hungary, and Paris in Pierre Max Dubois’s suite of characteristic pieces.
Cirrus clouds and the Eurostar train feature in James Rae’s new Sonata - with this its world premiere recording.
Richard Rodney Bennett’s Three Piece Suite cannot fail to charm with its lighthearted fun depiction of a melancholic samba, homage to Scott Joplin, and funk inspired fugal finale.
“Sarah Markham...was formidably impressive... a sustained feat of exuberance... breathed an extraordinary, haunted magic. The most mesmerising thing I’ve heard all year!”
(Michael White, The Independent on Sunday)
“The saxophonist Sarah Markham... was formidable...left me wanting to hear more.”
