Price: $7.98

Description: From a family originally from France, this Dutch composer spent much of his life in Middelburg; these suites were published in Amsterdam around 1712. Stylistically, they both look forward to Bach and Handel and contain a smaller amount of French influence. Only 8 of the 38 individual movements last longer than two minutes, somewhat unusual in itself; certainly a monument in Dutch baroque music which was not known for its harpsichord repertoire. Alessandro Simonetto (harpsichord).
