About the album

The Italian Influences on French Music and on the Music of Bach
The subject of this new CD is The Italian Influences on French Music and on the Music of Bach. It follows on from my previous Taskin CD Bach and the French Baroque. This programme is played on a copy of a 17th-century French harpsichord, built by David Rubio (1980) after an instrument by Vaudry (1681). The Vaudry instrument with its characteristic French timbre and a more Italian mode of construction is a specific early French instrument and is therefore, in my opinion, more suitable for this music than the Taskin instrument of the previous CD. Taskin is more based on a continuation of the Franco-Flemish tradition.

Johan Brouwer has made various CDs, including a CD with his collection of harpsichords, built by David Rubio. 2012 saw the release of a CD with works played on the famous Arp Schnitger positiv (1695) in Nieuw-Scheemda and on his Italian harpsichord, built by David Rubio (1977) after Giovanni Giusti (1679). In 2014 a CD with mostly French baroque music was recorded, played on his French harpsichord, built by David Rubio (1979) after Pascal Taskin (1769)
