Jones: Lessons For The Harpsichord
For Mitzi Meyerson’s latest Glossa recording, she presents an interesting insight into everyday eighteenth century English instrumental music with the Eight Setts of Lessons for the harpsichord by John Jones. Composed in 1974, these harpsichord works are nearly the only part of Jones’ catalog that remains. The eight lessons contain dance movements such as Sicilianas, Allemandes, Gavottes, and Minuets. Mitzi Meyerson is an American harpsichordist who has performed, recorded, and taught hundreds of students over the last thirty years. She is a professor of historical keyboard instruments at the Universitat der Kunste in Berlin.
