We’re very pleased to announce the release of the recording of 24 Inventions for Harpsichord by Stephen Dodgson (Sets 1-4), recorded by Ekaterina Likhina on Naxos.
For more about the Ekaterina’s style and approach, and the recording process, see the earlier blog about the Inventions CD.
The official blurb:
“Stephen Dodgson won Royal Philharmonic Society prizes for his early compositions, which signalled his emergence as a significant figure in British musical life. Though he composed in most genres he wrote with particular distinction for guitar and harpsichord and his sets of Inventions for harpsichord span a period of almost forty years. Scarlatti remained his inspiration both for rhythmic excitement and for promoting the instrument’s expressive power, and he responded by composing what is amongst the twentieth-century’s finest music for solo harpsichord: idiomatic, richly characterised and deeply satisfying as well as being creatively challenging for the performer.”
