ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Harpsichordist and fortepianist Elisabeth Wright is noted for her versatility as soloist and chamber musician, and for her expertise in the art of basso continuo improvisation. Following graduate studies with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam, she has maintained a distinguished international career performing in such noted venues as Boston and Berkeley Early Music Festivals, Mostly Mozart, Tanglewood, Aston Magna, Lufthansa of London, Vancouver Early Music, Tage alter Musik, Sydney Festival, Santa Fe Festival, Festival Cervantino, Musica Antica Bolzano, Festival de Estella and Stour Music Festival. Founding member of the esteemed Duo Geminiani, she also performs regularly with Musica Ficta, an ensemble founded in Colombia and dedicated to Spanish and Latin American Baroque vocal and instrumental repertoire, as well as collaborating with many artists of international renown.

She has been broadcast on four continents and recorded for Classic Masters, Milan-Jade, Focus, Arion, Arts Music, Centaur, and Musica Ficta Recordings. Professor at the Early Music Institute of Indiana University’s School of Music in Bloomington, she is in frequent demand for master classes and seminars pertaining to performance practices of music from late 16th – 18th century. She has written reviews for Early Keyboard Journal, is a founding member of The Seattle Early Music Guild and Bloomington Early Music, has served on the board of Early Music America, and as panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts, PEW and PennPat.

Her latest recording, Flores de Música, offers a rare opportunity to savor some fascinating 17th century Spanish keyboard music from the collections of the Franciscan friar Antonio Martín y Coll, as well as selected works by the great Valencian organist Juan Cabanilles (1644-1712). Spanish 17th century keyboard music is both virtuosic and full of unexpected turns and twists offering a rich harmonic, melodic language that begs being discovered through repeated hearings.
