Guillermo Brachetta (harpsichord)
Menno van Delft (harpsichord)

Following much critical acclaim for his debut solo album, Ciaccona, harpsichordist Guillermo Brachetta returns to the Resonus label with Concerto, a thrilling programme of works for one and two harpsichords composed senza ripieno.

This stunning album features J.S. Bach's Italian Concerto, the second part of his Clavier-Übung, and solo concerti from Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and Carl Heinrich Graun. Brachetta is joined by Menno van Delft for the original two-harpsichord version of J.S. Bach's Concerto a due cembali in C major, BWV 1061a.

Album Booklet (PDF)

'The highlight of the programme is the exuberant and no-holds-barred performance of J. S. B[ach]’s C major double concerto in which the players both inspire and steady each other, making sensible use of their instruments’ resources to enhance the inbuilt contrasts still further.'
