Overview

When Jacques Duphly's third book of harpsichord pieces was published in 1758, a Paris newspaper reported that "his talent and merit are too well-known to have need of being extolled." Well, Duphly (1715-1789) is hardly known at all today. Given the considerable charms of this recital, more's the pity. The now-forgotten French keyboard master may lack the blazing brilliance of Jean-Philippe Rameau (his illustrious predecessor), but Duphly obviously knew how to tickle the listener's fancy. His graceful melodies stick in the memory, and his keyboard writing elicits lithe, luxurious sonorities from this sometimes prickly instrument. Harpsichordist Katherine Roberts Perl plays with tenderness and suitable refinement. The sumptuous recording was produced by John Phillips, who also built the sweet-sounding harpsichord Ms. Perl plays.
