The repertoire of this album is truly fascinating. Although Girolamo Frescobaldi is undoubtedly the best known figure of the period covered by this CD, most of the pieces chosen were written by much less popular composers - they are of unquestionable artistic value, and sure to be a discovery for many music lovers.

From Antonio Valente, Giovanni Macque, Ascanio Mayone or Giovanni Maria Trabaci, the creators of the Neapolitan school, to Luzzasco Luzzaschi, Ercole Pasquini or Fescobaldi itself, representing the schools of Ferrara and Rome, this recording is a wonderful and amazing promenade through the essence of Italian keyboard in this crucial period in the history of music.

Sevillian harpsichordist Javier Nez presents his first solo recording, produced by the great gamba player Fahmi Alqhai (director of Accademia del Piacere, for which Javier serves as harpsichordist), who was artistic director of this recording.
