For his first recording with Ricercar, and as a prelude to an anthology of German Baroque harpsichord music, Yoann Moulin tackles works by two of Sweelinck’s most illustrious disciples. The preludes, chorales, fugues, dances and arias with variations of this repertory offer great diversity and enable us to grasp the personalities of the two composers, the introverted Scheidt and the more flamboyant and Baroque Scheidemann.


Scheidemann is a master of expressive simplicity, best demonstrated by his treatment of Dowland's famous 'Pavana Lachrymae'. Meanwhile Scheidt's inventive imagination is fired by the English lute song 'Fortune my foe', another melody beautified by Dowland. Yoann Moulin's instrument is a replica of an early 17th-century Rückers which has a warm and noble sound - words which could equally well describe Moulin's playing.  Michael Church
