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)

Artist(s)

Johan Brouwer (1943) studied organ under Wim van Beek and music theory under Frans van Eeden at the Groningen conservatory, then harpsichord at the Amsterdam conservatory. After his soloist exam he took up further studies with Gustav Leonhardt. Johan
Brouwer followed masterclasses by Ton Koopman, René Saorgin and Jos van Immerseel. Johan Brouwer has given concerts in the Netherlands, France, Portugal, England, Sweden and Germany and as leader/harpsichordist formed part of the Groningen baroque orchestra Collegium Musicum, concentrating not just on the great traditional works of the baroque but also on unknown work from the 17th and 18th centuries. He also worked for a long time as conductor of the Winschoten Chamber Choir, with which he performed much 17th century music together with the Collegium Musicum Groningen. Johan Brouwer has made various CDs, including a CD with his collection of harpsichords, built by David Rubio, a CD with radio recordings from ’73 and ’83 made by the NCRV on the Hinsz organs of Midwolda and Appingedam and 2 CDs in the book ‘35 Years of Collegium Musicum Groningen’, in which he can be heard as continuo player and conductor. 2012 saw the release of a CD in which works are 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).
