For many, the harpsichord immediately conjures up a world of powdered wigs, beauty spots and the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. In reality the powdered wigs were more at home in Versailles and the exaggerated beauty spots more visible in the royal courts of the Iberian peninsula.  This programme does not seek to denigrate Bach’s music in any way, as his music remains some of the greatest ever composed. It seeks rather to showcase music from France, Spain and Portugal that deserves to be in the lime-light. After all, they were far wealthier than the rest of Europe! Especially Spain and Portugal thanks to their conquests in the New World!
