BRITISH HARPSICHORD SOCIETY RECITAL
‘‘A Masterly Wildness’’ J. Kelway, G. F. Handel, D. Scarlatti and S. Dodgson
‘A Masterly Wildness’ – so said Charles Burney in reference to Joseph Kelway’s playing. This programme celebrates a genre which could perhaps be described as ‘Anglo-Scarlatti’. Daredevil hand-crossings, unpredictable figurations and plunges into exotic harmonies often vie with each other in robust rhythmic dances to create music that is both theatrical and virtuosic.
