? Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer (1656-1746) was born in Bohemia, and was active as a Kapellmeister at the Saxon-Lauenburg court for a staggering 60 years. ? Fischer introduced the French keyboard style to Germany, a sign of the German court’s efforts to emulate the grand way of living and culture of Versailles and its Sun King. His keyboard suites have French titles: Pieces de Clavessin, suites of courtly dances. His style is a fusion of the elaborate and ornamented French style and the German Stylus Phantasticus of his compatriots Froberger and Buxtehude. ? Tony Millán is one of Spain’s foremost keyboard players, he is equally at home in the Baroque as in the 20th century. He plays a magnificent copy of a Christian Vater harpsichord (1738), built by Andrea Restelli, using the Tartini-Vallotti temperament. ? Liner notes written by the artist.
