  • Description

    Considered one of the most talented musicians of his time, distinguished himself in church and theatre alike, Henry Purcell (1659-1695) began his career as a keyboard musician.

    In this recording, Jean-Luc Ho evokes different facets of the composer's activity and his European influences, alternating original pieces with transcriptions rooted in the practice of 17th century harpsichordists and organists.



    "One can literally feel the urge with which Ho uses Purcell's melodic inventiveness with great colour values, a wealth of detail and elaborate ornamentation to communicate and demonstrate that Purcell's harpsichord pieces share the vivid expressiveness of his theatrical music." – Pizzicato *****
