Javier Núñez, harpsichord

Fahmi Alqhai, Pedro Estevan, Sara Águeda

The repertoire of this album is truly fascinating: the great importance that instrumental music lived in the late sixteenth century was continued in the seventeenth century. It was the era in which it emancipated from vocal music, and at that time the keyboard repertoire freely developed from Renaissance models: dances with variations, variations on vocal melodies or on bassi ostinati and tenors, improvisatory forms like toccate, and stricter forms based on imitative counterpoint, as ricercare, fantasia, canzona and capriccio. Although Girolamo Frescobaldi is undoubtedly the best known figure of the period covered by this CD, most of the pieces chosen are due, however, to much less popular composers, but of unquestionable artistic value, which is sure to be a discovery for many music lovers: from Antonio Valente, Giovanni Macque, Ascanio Mayone or Giovanni Maria Trabaci, the creators of the Neapolitan school (that composed works with much chromaticisms and dissonances, like those of later composers represented here, as Giovanni Salvatore, Gregorio Strozzi or Bernardo Storace), to Luzzasco Luzzaschi, Ercole Pasquini, or Fescobaldi itself, representing the schools of
Ferrara and Rome, this recording is a wonderful and amazing promenade through the essence of Italian keyboard in this crucial period in the history of music.

Sevillian harpsichordist Javier Núñez presents in Cantus his first a solo recording, which was produced by the great gamba player Fahmi Alqhai (director of Accademia del Piacere, for which Javier serves as harpsichordist), who was artistic director of this recording. The basic idea has been to produce a recording that, while remaining musically and scholarly consistent and with strong stylistic foundations, could be very attractive to those who first come to this repertoire, and also to those who know it. Paraphrasing the famous passage referred to the great vihuela player Luys de Narváez, so that those who do not know this music become marvelled, and those who know it, most mervelled". To achieve this, three factors work together: firstly the impressive technique and transparent, flexible and full of musical direction touch of Javier Núñez; second, a varied and very beautiful program that, as we said at the beginning, is fascinating to listen to; and finally the colours added with the participation, in some tracks, of three great guest musicians and their instruments: double harp by Sara Águeda, percussions of a living legend of early music as Pedro Estevan, in his third appearance in Cantus (you can hear him with the great guitar player Xavier Díaz-Latorre on two discs), and the contribution of artistic director Fahmi Alqhai in the production, and as a performer of colascione (an exotic string instrument of Turkish origin), that closes the recording.
