JOHAN HELMICH ROMAN (1694-1758): 12 Keyboard Suites, BeRI 225-236.
Catalogue Number: 08O023
Description: These are Romanís only substantial works for keyboard, datable only between the extremes of 1736 to around 1750 and probably written with the clavichord in mind. Elements of the galant, hints of Couperin and Rameau and Domenico Scarlatti and seeming early sonata form mix with older baroque forms. Presented here on a Steinway D by a young pianist who provides eight pages of notes about Roman, these scores and his choices in how and on what to perform them. 2 CDs. Oskar Ekberg (piano).
