Gramophone
'His is the fast-fingered but also beautifully controlled touch of a true harpsichordist, producing a rich sprung tone, exquisitely turned ornaments that seem to be both nimble and unhurried at the same time, and (as the flowing lines of the Bach best reveal) faultless legato.'

Trevor Pinnock - Journey - Kevin Bryan's Record Reviews


02 February 2016
Kevin Bryan's Record Reviews

Historical performance specialist Trevor Pinnock has chosen to mark his seventieth birthday by releasing a new CD showcasing his highly personal selection of works for the harpsichord. The compositions featured here run the gamut from 16th century creations by the likes of Byrd, Tallis and the blind Spanish composer Antonio de Cabezon to the Baroque delights of Scarlatti and Handel, and Pinnock's consumate keyboard artistry breathes new life into them all.
