Harpsichordist Byron Schenkman shares some of their favorite keyboard music of the 18th century including works by Marie-Emmanuelle Bayon, Joseph Bologne, Jacques Duphly, Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, plus variations on a theme of Salieri by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

“Schenkman’s performances of this well-chosen, varied, and in some cases unusual repertoire are fluent, idiomatic, and engaging.”
