Elizabeth Farr's Naxos Interview

BALBASTRE, C.-B.: Harpsichord Music - Pieces de clavecin, Book 1 / Livre contenant des pieces de different genre (excerpts) (Farr)

A celebrated keyboardist and composer under the ancien régime, Claude-Bénigne Balbastre survived the French Revolution only to die in poverty a decade later. His multifaceted musical legacy continued the strong tradition of French harpsichord music while embracing the innovations of Italian music, such as those of Scarlatti, and fashionable new styles which emerged for the salon. Completely charming and tuneful, his keyboard works are well served by the stunning Keith Hill instrument chosen for this recording. Other highly-acclaimed recordings featuring Elizabeth Farr are also available on Naxos.
