J. C. F. Fischer: Eight Suites of 1698, Colin Booth, harpsichords - [SBCD-222] $16.98

Johann Caspar Friedrich Fischer was a slightly older contemporary of J. S. Bach. The eight suites published in 1698 as Blumen-Büchlein (Little Book of Flowers) demonstrate Fischer to be a remarkably inventive and tuneful composer. He was an important mentor of Bach in the writing of orchestral and keyboard suites of dances and in composing preludes and fugues. Much of his music is so fine as to defy comparison with Bach's. Today's performers are exploring it with enthusiasm. Colin Booth plays Suites I and VI on a single-manual Italian harpsichord with 17th-century-style compass. For the other six suites, he uses a more conventional two-manual harpsichord based on the design of a brass-strung French original of 1661. Notes on the music and instruments cover 8 pages of the 12-page booklet. Imported by Raven.
