Notes and Editorial Reviews

This special multimedia project from Paradizo illustrates the encounter between an artist and an exceptional venue. The Temple de la Musique Ancienne was the first center of performance and learning for the harpsichord and for Baroque music to be created in the twentieth century. This project commemorates Wanda Landowska's vital impact on music making between the years 1927 and 1940. This museum quality publication, featuring Paradizo's elegant packaging and presentation, includes recordings and documents witnessing one of the most important projects of the entire harpsichord revival and early music movement.
