Product Notes

Jacques Champion de Chambonnieres is called the father of the French harpsichord school. He was a keyboard player, composer, and dancer, and held the prestigious post of Court Composer at the court of the King of France. His fame spread all over Europe, and he counted many composers as his pupils: the Couperin family, D'Angelbert, Froberger and many others. Being a professional dancer it is no wonder Chambonnieres composed many suites of dance forms, such as the Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, and Gigue, brilliantly written in elaborate style, making full use of the possibilities of the then newly invented 2-manual harpsichord. Harpsichordist Franz Silvestri tackles these works, playing a magnificent copy of a 1681 Vaudy harpsichord.
