Retrospect Ensemble’s new album ‘J.S. Bach: Harpsichord Concertos’ has been crowned ‘CD of the month’ by BBC Music Magazine. The disc explores four of Bach’s concertos for the harpsichord and has been described as containing ‘vibrant energy’. With Matthew on the harpsichord ‘every contrapuntal detail [is] crystal clear’ and his ‘sparkling articulation…generates enormous exuberance’. More information can be found in this month’s issue of BBC Music Magazine.
Matthew has also just flown into Moscow to replace Sir Roger Norrington in conducting Russian orchestra Musica Viva with soloist Robert Levin. Further information
The concert has an all Mozart programme with Symphony No. 33, Piano Concerto no.20 and Symphony no.36 Linz.
