Do you ever imagine someone asking whether you would be interested the extensive collection of scores of the internationally renowned Baroque specialist Christopher Hogwood? That is exactly what happened to the harpsichordist Menno van Delft, who trawled through no fewer than twelve big boxes of historical material with his former star student Artem Belogurov. The compositions included many unfamiliar gems of the 18th and early 19th centuries. It was a real voyage of discovery! Together, they selected the most interesting works for keyboard instruments, including music by forgotten names such as Johann Ludwig Stanzen and Hugo Franz Reichsfreiherr von Kerpen. Playing both solos and duets, the two musicians will conjure up a genuine feast of 18th century music.
