Gilbert Martinez, harpsichord, fortepiano
MusicSources Artistic Director Gilbert Martinez gives a rare performance featuring a german style harpsichord built by David Van Ness, and an original antique square fortepiano built by Georg Astor from 1789. These two instruments co-existed in the late 18th century, and much music was written with the idea that they could be performed on either instrument. Scintillating works of George Frideric Handel will be joined by charming works of William Babell, Thomas Augustine Arne, and Johann Christian Bach.
