A new Ground in E minor

Trevor Pinnock, is one of the pioneering figures in historically informed performance, having founded the English Concert in 1973.

When The Independent reported on a harpsichord recital by Pinnock at Wigmore Hall in 2005, the reviewer judged that “he has lost none of his finesse, while expanding his musical range.”

This programme spans the Baroque and Classical periods and features suites and sonatas by Purcell, Haydn and Handel.

Some years ago, Pinnock made a studio recording of Handel suites. The reaction from Gramophone Magazine hints at the pleasures in store on this new disc from Wigmore Hall Live: “Once in a while a reviewer receives a record that strikes him as being so exactly right that, without switching off his critical faculties, he finds himself just sitting back and enjoying it. In an ideal world this would doubtless always be so; but I must thank Trevor Pinnock … for this particular contribution to my personal Utopia.

"Pinnock’s musicianship flowers in an anniversary year Wigmore recital."

Nalen Anthoni

Gramophone - May 2010

"...Here, live performance gives special intensity to brilliant and eloquently expressive playing on a mellifluous harpsichord. Highlights are Prucell’s suites in A and G minor. Despite their small scale, they have a wide emotional range, harmonic and rhythmic subtlety and tuneful charm. Great music - British Orpheus indeed."    ****
