Hässler sonata: Grand Gigue
fiogf49gjkf0d

What else to do at work besides to bite off the residue of the glue form my hands and to listing music live from different parts of the world.

Anyhow, I got today an email:

“…. the BBC are running an experiment in Higher Res (for them) playback during this last week of the proms concerts.
 
here's a link

here's a discussion about it which the BBC spokeperson/engineer participates & fine tunes the broadcast quality in response to listeners.

An interesting experiment…”

After listing for a half of the day I suddenly came across a pearl.  BBC Radio 3 broadcasted live-to-tape play of a harpsichord sonata Grand Gigue by Johann Wilhelm Hässler from last year’s City of London Festival. It was played (brilliantly) by Mahan Esfahani

The peace is wonderful, in a way reminds me the best works of Antonio Soler.  Even Hässler composed in the end of the 18 century but it feel incredible contemporary. I was trying to find recordings of the Grand Gigue but was not successful. If anyone knows any interesting recordings of the work than let me know.
