Dussek in good light
with BASIL RAMSEY
cpo 999 583-2
Dussek experienced an eventful life, with much travelling around the
European capitals. Doubtless a fine keyboard player, he gathered a reputation
for his music, mostly solo keyboard and chamber works.
The wafer-thin textures of his ensemble music are fine in sympathetic
performance creating an ambience that goes with the music and the style;
and Dussek's melodic gifts were varied enough to provide fertile material
for development. During the course of these half-dozen or so sonatas it
blends and binds the material to engage the ear and delight the mind [listen - track 3, 1:14-1:50]. Trio 1790 unites the
talent of performers who know exactly what manner of performance gives this
music its style and vivacity. As a whole, this 63 minutes is proof enough.
