Eighteenth-century Flemish harpsichord music today is mostly identified with the Pièces de clavecin of 1731 by Joseph-Hector Fiocco. Although this collection, consisting of two major harpsichord suites, undoubtedly forms the high point in the genre, I want this CD to show that Fiocco was certainly not the only good Flemish harpsichord composer. The repertoire of this CD is the result of an artistic research project I carried out into eighteenth-century Flemish harpsichord music, based on the rich collection of the Antwerp Conservatory library.
-- Ewald Demeyere

Demeyere shows us that there is more to Flemisch harpsichord music than only Fiocco's music and this CD is a unique statement for that and takes us into the wealth of other compostions of the eighteenth century.
