Suites (6) for harpsichord


Fernando Miguel Jaloto (harpsichord)


French composer Charles Dieupart spent most of his active life in London, where he became famous as the founder of the Opera Season of the Queen Theatre of Haymarket. He was much sought after as a harpsichord teacher, and no wonder his most famous work was the 'Six Suittes de Clavessin' (original spelling), a highly original work which formed the bridge between the flourishing French style and the contrapuntal German style of keyboard writing. The great Johann Sebastian Bach was also influenced by this work, as traces can be found in his English Suites.

As a PhD in Historical Musicology, Portuguese harpsichordist Fernando Jaloto did extensive research into Dieupartís work, and the performance practice of its time. Despite its basis in historical research, Jolotoís playing is as free and inspired as if he improvised these works on the spot.

The booklet contains extensive liner notes on the composer, the instrument, the music and the artist's approach.
