Gilbert Rowland is one of Europe’s most senior and accomplished exponents of the harpsichord. Following his critically acclaimed 6-CD series of the Harpischord Suites of Handel for Divine Art, he moved to the Athene imprint specialising now in baroque music and ‘period’ instruments for his well received disc of Suites by Johann Mattheson. This 2-CD set is the first volume in a projected complete survey of the Harpsichord Suites (or Partitas) by Johann Jakob Froberger, whose organ and harpsichord music is individual in nature and ground breaking – he was one of the first composers to settle the ‘dance-movement’ style of suite taken up by Couperin, Bach, and Handel among many others. There are 12 suites in this collection. Gilbert Rowland plays a 2-manual French style harpsichord made by Andrew Wooderson after an instrument by Goemans (Paris, 1750).
