Description: Well, not exactly five since there’s nothing here from the 19th century but Schroyen’s 12-minute “Concert-Rondo” of 1995 offers the 20th century dish - atonal yet magically resolving into a reminiscence of Bach. Needless to say, everything else is what it says on the label and four different instruments are used and documented in the excellent notes. Jan Devlieger (virginal, harpsichord).
