    Program

    ------------------------
    Following last season’s success, Justin Taylor returns to the Lights of Early Music Festival to present a musical proposal without preconceptions, a programme that vindicates the harpsichord as a solo instrument with a repertoire that goes beyond the usual repertoires of the 17th and 18th centuries. If last season he demonstrated, performing music by the Forqueray family, why he won the prestigious International Musica Antiqua Harpsichord Competition in Bruges, in this new concert he extends the capabilities of his instrument. Taylor’s concert features works by Domenico Scarlatti, Pare Antoni Soler and György Ligeti. The music of the 18th and 20th centuries shake hands and enter into dialogue, at times contradicting and at times complementing each other.
    The challenge is both technical and musical, but the performance of the young harpsichord player not only makes the works converse, but he also illuminates them, discovering aesthetic proposals and demonstrating compositional resources that were surprisingly familiar among composers distant in time, such as Scarlatti and Ligeti. Like the great performers throughout the history of the harpsichord, Taylor explores and offers new composers the expressive and mechanical possibilities of a 21st-century instrument, moving seamlessly between sonatas, passacaglia, continua and fandangos.
