Early keyboardist Terence Charlston presents the first recording on clavichord of the complete fantasias and canzonas from Johann Jacob Froberger’s Libro Secondo, written in 1649. As were almost all of Froberger’s works, the Libro Secondo was not published during the composer’s lifetime.

Tonight’s recital comes from the CD “Froberger: Complete Fantasia and Canzonas; Terence Charlston, harpsichord; Divine Art; DDA 25204 ©2020”
