Celine Frisch (harpsichord)


Céline Frisch, who studied with Jesper Christiansen and Andreas Staier, and now appears regularly with Café Zimmermann, offers a wide-ranging panorama of J S Bach, the harpsichord composer, on a harpsichord by Anthony Sidey.

This title was released for the first time in 2000 on harmonia mundi's young artists' strand, les nouveaux interprétes.

"Even in the quicker movements, where her tempos inhabit the upper end of the spectrum, they never sound rushed and the effect is joyous; while the slow ones are spacious and thoughtful." - Gramophone, September 2000

"Above all, Frisch has a poise and fluency at the harpsichord that’s extremely rare" - American Record Guide, Sept/Oct 2000

"Her interpretations are subtle and sophisticated, and she digs deep in the music without any hint of over-indulgence" - Early Music Review, Nov 2000
