Ignacio Prego is a leading member of the rising generation of Spanish early music specialists, which numbers existing Glossa recording artists such as Fahmi Alqhai and Josetxu Obregón. Prego has already been securing for himself a very busy concert schedule across Europe, the US and Asia, and he is frequently to be heard performing harpsichord concertos with ensembles such as the Portland Baroque Orchestra or The English Concert, collaborating with eminent musicians such as Monica Huggett and Nicholas McGegan, or giving solo harpsichord recitals, where he is able to demonstrate his special preference for the works of JS Bach.
This new recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations represents Prego’s third solo recital on CD, but his first for Glossa. Heard playing a splendid copy of a 1738 Christian Vater harpsichord on this Federico Prieto-engineered recording, Ignacio Prego illustrates perfectly the points put forward in scholar David Schulenberg’s essay for the booklet, in which particular emphasis is placed on Bach’s threefold “cycling” of the 30 variations, each time combining one free variation, one duet and a canon. Fine photographs from Noah Shaye round up a new inspiring Glossa title.
