Description
A late master of the French harpsichord school, Jacques Du Phly died in 1789, the day after the storming of the Bastille. His four books of pieces for the instrument contain 46 varied works, from the exquisitely crafted dances of the high French baroque to the galant/roccoco style, and this thrilling, milestone recording demonstrates his extraordinary range and diversity. John Paul's harpsichord is an adaptation of the often-copied Antoine Vaudry instrument of 1691 (the original is in the Victoria and Albert Museum), with the spine extended by four inches.

"An enterprising and important set. Du Phly's music is finely wrought and enjoyably inventive, very much in the spirit of Couperin. John Paul plays it with vigour and much expressive vitality.... The balance and acoustic are nigh on perfect. This is an instrument of personality played with real understanding of its character and, indeed, the qualities of the music."Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music
