Introduction and Waltz for the Harp and Piano Forte
Dussek was a compositional pioneer, but also (like all the great composers) was willing and able to cater for all audiences and provide brilliant lighter music when necessary. His music for Harp and Piano reflects this extremely clearly. On this CD we have 4 works by Dussek: 2 larger scale works (Op.72 Duo in E-flat, and Op.73 Duo Concertant in F) clearly written to be played during his last years in France with his great harpist colleague François Naderman (who also published the music), an earlier F major Duo Op.26 from 1794 “As Performed at Mr.Salomon’s Concert in Hanover Square” in London, and a lovely 2-movement Duettino in C clearly written with the amateur market in mind. All of this music is superbly crafted. His understanding of the relationship between these two instruments gained through his immense experience is perfect.

It must be said here that the incredible sound mix between the harp and piano in this music can only be truly appreciated by its delivery on excellent instruments from Dussek’s time. The qualities of both the Broadwood piano and the Naderman harp are unbelievably complimentary and stunningly attuned to each other. It is sometimes difficult to determine who is playing what. The Broadwood piano in particular has the ability to play with a gossamer-light sound which allows the harp through without a fight. It can however thunder when needed, a characteristic of these new and exciting pianos from England which appealed so strongly to Haydn and Beethoven.
