J.S. Bach Harpsichord Works (2020)

Bach

Jory Vinikour

Harpsichordist Jory Vinikour returns to NativeDSD with his second recording of Bach on the Harpsichord.  Presenting four masterworks for harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach, Jory Vinikour performs on a harpsichord modeled after German harpsichords of Bach's time, notably Silbermann. The music speaks with richness and clarity.

The double-manual German harpsichord featured on this recording was built by Thomas and Barbara Wolf in 1995 at The Plains, Virginia. It is based on a single-manual instrument by Christian Vater, 1738, Hannover; FF (FF#) - e’’’ (a=415/440), 2 x 8’, 1 x 4’,  coupler, buff (pictured pp. 5).

The Italian Concerto and the French Overture, both published by Bach in the 2nd volume of his Clavier Übung, are paired with two other great works - the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, as well as the concerto-like Prelude and Fugue in a minor.
