The Virtuoso Harpsichord / Jacqueline Ogeil
Vibrant young Melbourne harpsichordist Jacqueline Ogeil showcases the very virtuosic side of the harpsichord in a CD featuring J. S. Bach's 'Fantasia and Fugue', 5 sparkling sonatas by Scarlatti, Handel's 'Suite in B flat', Rameau's elegant 'Troisème Concert', and the premiere recording of Naji Hakim's suite 'Shasta' – Ogeil studied with the award winning composer while in Paris where he told her to make the work "bite and scratch".
Ogeil hopes that this disc will dispel any ideas that the harpsichord is old-fashioned or lacking in tonal colour. By chosing works with flair, this young talented performer demonstrates the dramatic and passionate side of the instrument.
