ArtistsMitzi Meyerson (harpsichord)
Alas, little of Jonesís compositional output remains except for these harpsichord Setts (or Suites), full of 18th-century inspiration and dance movements such as Sicilianas, Allemandes, Gavottes and Minuets. If Jones shows himself aware of orchestral scores by Handel, his music also nods Ė as Handel did Ė in the direction of CPE Bach. Such revelations in Jonesís music would amount to little if it werenít for the virtuosic brilliance provided by Meyerson, as she has demonstrated over recent years in forgotten gems by the likes of Gottlieb Muffat, Claude-Benigne Balbastre, Giovanni Battista Somis, as well as Richard Jones (probably no relation).
