<<  -- 3 --  Jennifer Paull    A BORN MUSICIAN

-------------------------------

The CD concludes with part of a selection of anonymous, original pieces, collected by the publisher Anton Huberty (1722-1791). This collection was thought lost, but the one surviving copy was discovered several years ago in the Sibley Library at the Eastman School of Music, Rochester NY, where it had been lying forgotten since 1926.

I can well understand therefore, that to record some of this miraculous 'find' on what is a total première; the first specialised CD in the history of the viola d'amore, was strong. Huberty's rare collection is after all, the largest single grouping of works for the instrument.

I admire the courage and devotion of the soloist in his musically daunting task, so I shall therefore simply comment that this last item on the CD [listen -- track 28, 0:00-1:09] fills the evening air as beautifully in its performance as does the rest of this recording. However, instead of a crystal glass of iced, white wine as an accompaniment in his hand, the listener finds a somewhat, rustic tankard of beer in its stead.
