The contribution of the American composer, teaching and pianist Vincent Persichetti to the harpsichord repertoire is unique among 20th century composers. He wrote a diverse selection of music, including an opera and nine symphonies, while his substantial output for harpsichord offers a vivid and rich variety of expression. The ingenious contrapuntal writing alludes to baroque ornamentation while remaining firmly rooted in the contemporary idiom. Lyrical passages and technical brilliance abound vitality and inventiveness.
