This is the third of at least five volumes of EMI early stereophonic recordings, released in a joint venture with the Archive of Recorded Sound (ARS). EMI started to record in stereo in 1954 and all the recordings in this new series are from this historic period of recorded music. All the releases will appear for the first time in some form and feature many of the greatest classical artists of the time. Popular classical music figures of the mid-twentieth century, the artists on this disc would have been particularly familiar to the British concertgoer in this period. George Malcolm, equally proficient as a conductor, pianist and composer and who with his unique brilliance brought the harpsichord to a place of universal respect in the concert hall; Thurston Dart was an eminent English musicologist, keyboard player and conductor; Ralph Kirkpatrick was celebrated American harpsichordist whose manner at the manner at the harpsichord is of a completely different sensibility than the others on this issue, from the flamboyant, Technicolor approach so enthusiastically championed by his British colleagues. You could call this album a harpsichord extravaganza – indeed in George Malcolm's ingratiating and inspired Variations on a Theme by Mozart for Four Harpsichords the instruments are shown-off superbly, and also in the splendid arrangement of Vivaldi’s Concerto in A minor, Op. 3/11 by Thurston Dart. The Bach Cantata No. 6 recording is a recent discovery and is the Bach Choir's earliest recording in stereo.
