Event description

Description

CAROLE CERASI harpsichord

Rivals

Playing contests are documented between Louis Marchand and JS Bach, and between Handel and Domenico Scarlatti. Scarlatti was judged possibly superior to Handel on the harpsichord, although inferior on the organ and Marchand disappeared in the morning, perhaps having heard Bach and knowing he would lose! Carole’s programme will include Bach’s Italian Concerto, suites by Marchand and Handel, and sonatas by Scarlatti.

Carole Cerasi is one of the foremost early keyboard players of her generation. Her debut CD of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre won the 1999 Gramophone Instrumental Award; Carole has given recitals throughout Europe, performing in major festivals, as well as in Japan, Singapore, Colombia, Canada and the USA.
