Music For The Harpsichord - Sylvia Marlowe

Music For The Harpsichord
Sylvia Marlowe
Decca Records DL 10001

From the back cover: Sylvia Marlowe made her American debut in a series of coast-to-coast broadcasts featuring the entire Well-Tempered Clavier of Bach. Since then, she has appeared with such organizations as the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Boston, Chicago and Seattle Symphony Orchestra and L'Orchestre National de Paris. Her solo recitals have been supplemented by concerts with her own chamber ensemble, the Harpsichord Quartet.

With the conscientiousness of the true artist, Miss Marlowe has taken pains to inform herself of the correct and complex performance traditions of the music she plays. Her distinguished career has earned her not only the affection of a world-wide public, but the esteem of her fellow-musicians as well.

Miss Marlowe is music director of the Harpsichord Music Society, an organization whose activities include the commissioning of new works for the harpsichord, the establishment of scholarships for advanced study of the harpsichord, and the bringing together of players and musicologists for discussion of performance of older music.
