The 23rd March 2011, 10 years ago, saw the release of the first volume of extracts from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book magnificently recorded by Kenneth Weiss on a virginals, a Flemish and an Italian harpsichord at the Château d’Hardelot during the Midsummer Festival.
"A superbly recorded live CD, this album demonstrates remarkable subtlety of touch and phrasing. With his admirable capacity for rhythmic stability, Weiss masters the sheer virtuosity and throws new light on the almost orchestral polyphonic complexity of this music. He transcends the interminable harmonic scrolls to hypnotic heights... A powerfully imaginative reading by an musician at the zenith of his art."
Philippe Ramin, Diapason, June 2011
