Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra (harpsichord)

Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra’s expertise in this program is best explained by the following quote, "For more than five centuries, improvisation was the normal way of playing a keyboard instrument, particularly for organists. Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra's book, the result of years of research and experience, offers musicians the possibility to develop this art today at the school of one of the best teachers and improvisers, Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach and the Art of Improvisation is a fundamental bookwith a much-needed historical approach to improvisation, rife with valuable information and practical examples.” Dr. Edoardo Bellotti, Hochschule für Kunst und Musik, Bremen, Germany.

Her playing is best defined by the following. “Playing entirely from memory – a feat rare among organists – she displayed unfailing authority, stylistic savvy and a good deal of élan….” Kansas City Star, …expertise and artistry culminating in this extraordinary and important recording.

Ouverture in D major


John O'Donnell (harpsichord)

From the House of Master Bohm presents spirited and musicalogically authoritative performances of Georg Böhm's keyboard suites and chorale partitas by the renowned Australian Bach scholar John O'Donnell. He imbues the exuberant dance movements in Böhm’s suites with rustic energy, lilt and swing.

In the suites' slow movements O'Donnell demonstrates the uncanny ability to make his plucked instrument sing, the oft expressed ideal of centuries of the finest instrumentalists.

In achieving this ideal he is aided by the angelic resonance of his 1995 William Bright Harpsichord. And Böhm’s extravagant “stylus phantasticus” passages, features of his choral partitas, are executed by the harpsichordist with Dionysian sparkle.

The whole of O’Donnell’s performance is informed by a life of scholarship at the cutting edge of early music performance. His performance eloquently articulates how much more that there is in Böhm’s music than the mere notes on the page.

The earthy quality characteristic of many of Böhm's pieces harks back to the instrumental dances of earlier times, yet his suites of dance movements also look forward to their zenith in the keyboard suites of J S Bach. Böhm’s music comes down to us almost exclusively via manuscript copies from the Bach family’s collection, at least one piece having been copied in the house of master Böhm by a 15-year-old Johann Sebastian Bach.
