Notes and Editorial Reviews

Organ or harpsichord? This question is ever present throughout the first solo release by Marton Borsanyi: the virtuoso and Early Music specialist answers this question individually for each of the works by Johann Pachelbel that is recorded here. Borsanyi performs at a select set of instruments, modelled on prominent exemplars of the seventh century: the harpsichord emulates the tradition of the famed dynasty of harpsichord builder Ruckers-Couchet, and the soun dof the small organ by Peter Meier resembles that oft he Nuremberg organ builder Nicolaus Manderschedit. These instruments make audible the rich colors of seventeenth-century music. The joy of discovery and experimentation with which Borsanyi gives each of these works its very own Read more character demonstrates that this music is anything but dull - even if it was first performed over 300 years ago. He manges to capture a vast range of colors in fascinating manner: from wan wafts to sparkling radiance. Read less
