Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The first two things to strike one here are the nobly incisive tone of the 1782 Sodi harpsichord (in the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter), with its truly magnificent bass sonority, and the extreme precision and control of Tilney's playing. In places this tends to make him sound rather stolidly academic, as in his Kk326 in C, and too sober-sided in cheerful pieces like Kk428 in A, with which he begins this recital; but then he immediately makes amends in the sparkle of its companion, Kk429. For virtuosic high spirits there is nothing here to equal his Kk124 in G (which leaves an exhilarating after-glow at the end of the disc), and there is springy rhythm in Kk98, brightness in Kkl98 and strong impetus in K1467." -- Gramophone Read more 10/1994 Read less
