About the album

On Some Like it Plucked harpsichordist, organist and conductor Patrick Ayrton successfully combines jazz and 20th century piano pieces in arrangements for harpsichord. Ayrton's ensemble Les Inventions and violinist Thomas Gould join in for the pièce de résistance of this album: Joseph Horovitz' 1965 Jazz Harpsichord Concerto. In this highly entertaining concerto, Horovitz ingeniously crosses Vivaldian sonata and concerto forms with Gershwinian harmonies in what the composer describes himself as “an attempt to fuse Baroque structures into a modern conception of swing texture”. https://youtu.be/67etuh97olw
