MICHAEL DRAKE

It was interesting to hear music which in the present day we are used to more listening to on a piano or even forte piano, on a different tambre to the harpsichord.

Perhaps it is really more suited to a drawing room ambience rather than St Margaret's Church, but nevertheless Mozart's highly decorated Munich Sonata immediately gave another perspective, even if it slightly missed the musical drama we know today.

Ian Pritchard, a young American with a growing reputation, enterprisingly produced variations of pace in the excerpt from Domenico Scarlatti's D minor “Essercizi” in moving the marked Presto to extremely presto and whilst the Allegro from Mozart's C major Suite was not always of the tidiest, the Allemande was fragrantly reflective.

Not surprisingly more light hearted was Haydn's G minor Sonata and the final piece, Mozart's Variations on children's “Black Sheep” was even more so – it was fun and the recitalist was clever with it.
