A varied selection of colourful and entertaining harpsichord music by François Couperin and Christophe Moyreau, enlivened by readings, to evoke early eighteenth-century Paris, Orléans and Versailles.
Penelope Cave is an international prize-winning harpsichordist who has performed and broadcast throughout Europe. Her CD, From Lisbon to Madrid, received 5 stars from the BBC Music Magazine, she contributed to the British Harpsichord Society’s CD, Shadow Journey, of 21st Century Harpsichord Music, in which she plays the title piece, Enno Kasten’s Schattenreise, and her recording of twentieth-century repertoire, Panorama, on the Prima Facie label, was issued last year.
Penelope Cave was awarded a collaborative doctoral award by the AHRC and the National Trust, at the University of Southampton, during which she project-managed and appeared in four films about music at Tatton Park (viewable online). She gained her PhD in the summer of 2014, and has since been an artist-in-residence at Dyrham Park, researching and performing music of around 1700, relating to the Blathwayt family. Performances on early pianos with the Australian pianist, Katrina Faulds, have included recitals for Chawton House, Hampshire.
