Songs in the Ground–recorder and harpsichord

Galhano/Montgomery Duo: Cléa Galhano, recorder; Vivian Montgomery, harpsichord
Label: Ten Thousand Lakes (The Schubert Club), SC 114

The Galhano-Montgomery Duo performs music for recorder and harpsichord based on the ground and variation principles, including Rigadoons, a medley of neo-Baroque dances which David Evan Thomas wrote for them in 1998. Also on the CD: music of the Italian Baroque; Vivian’s striking rendition of the Bach Passacaglia in C minor, and John Morrison’s wicked and whimsical Twisted Little Ground.

Reviews of Rigadoons:

quotation marksComposer Thomas has supplied such an abundance of invention and sheer compositional high spirits that the listener’s interest never flags. Once again, the authentically convincing performance by the Duo sweeps all before it. I hope both these pieces have already entered the professional recorder repertory. These two American composers have made an important contribution to performers and audiences alike. –Tim Broege, American Recorder, March 2004″

–Tim Broege, American Recorder Magazine

quotation marksA highlight of the CD. I can imagine movements such as Furlana and the lively Tambourin becoming firm favourites with concert audiences the world over.”

–Adam J. Dopad, Recorder Magazine (London)
