Trevor Pinnock - Journey - Financial Times
15 April 2016Financial Times
The journey of the title refers to the
European travels of the Spanish composer Antonio de Cabezón in the 16th
century. It could also, though, refer to Trevor Pinnock's own musical journey.
His 40 years of experience as a
harpsichordist (not to mention conductor) is reflected in a wide range of music
that leads from the Italy of Scarlatti and Frescobaldi to the England of Byrd
A formidable sense of rhythm underpins
all the playing.
As the disc's centrepiece, Bach's
French Suite No. 6 in E major exudes authority - nothing flash or rushed, just
the wisdom of maturity.
