Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival: Event 8
In the piano’s early days, the harpsichord was still popular, and much of the keyboard music written at the time was considered playable on either instrument. Mozart played the harpsichord as a boy, including in duets with his sister on their tours through Europe, a time when he was much influenced by J.S. Bach’s youngest son, Johann Christian. 4-hand duets by both composers are heard here alongside a sonata by one of the piano’s first great virtuosi, Jan Ladislav Dussek.
‘Richard and Alexandra are superb advocates blending virtuosity and understated elegance in performances that truly inhabit the music.‘ BBC Music Magazine
