Richard Egarr has done this wonderful music proud. He approaches it with the proper seriousness it merits, but also with a twinkle in his eye, as can be seen from his remark in the notes, "There are wonderful beauties in these jewel-like suites - also heartbreaking depths and earthy 'fish-slapping' humour. His obvious love of the music shines through, with every movement showing real thoughtfulness and enjoyment. Egarr's usual measured phrasing has an appealing gravity here, especially in the minor-key suites. The grounds are also emotive territory. The snaking tune of 'A New Ground' is particularly affecting and strangely familiar, like a bittersweet memory coming back to haunt the mind all over again. Bradley Bambarger, STAR-LEDGER.

Published a year after his death, Henry Purcell's eight keyboard suites were long overshadowed by his more celebrated works. They are the heirs to a characteristically English vein, shifting from humour to seriousness in delightfully casual fashion, like the elegant grounds chosen by Richard Egarr to echo them here; the musical testament of a composer who died all too soon.

Purcell - Keyboard Suites & Grounds. Recorded October 13-15, 2007, Potton Hall. Richard Egarr (harpsichord). BBC Music Magazine, October 2008, Mor. elease Date: 29th Sep 2008. In his latest solo recital for harmonia mundi, Richard Egarr turns to the rarely heard harpsichord Suites by Henry Purcell. In his beautifully shaped reading, these eight muscular and quirky works, published the year after Purcell's death, are interspersed with seven shorter pieces built on a recurring pattern - a chaconne, a rondeau, and five 'grounds'. Richard Egarr has worked with all types of keyboards and is in great demand both as soloist and as accompanist.
