She plays “red-blooded” harpsichord!

It’s well-known to a wide audience of admirers that Elaine Comparone has a commanding presence at the harpsichord. And while she sits this one out in a bedazzling reading of Bach’s D minor concerto, she’s made headlines standing before her beloved as Queen of a Chamber Band that’s produced reams of high quality performances.

Comparone, in royal fashion, continues to champion the harpsichord as a front and center player among its keyboard kin. In solo and ensemble appearances, her resonant Dowd or Hubbard make a profoundly audible impression to final cadence, leaving an entranced audience with an insatiable appetite for more.

What better way to showcase the impeccable artistry of Maestra Comparone than to post her most recent gift to a growing league of You Tube fans and subscribers: an inspired recording session at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in New York City.

J.S. Bach Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1052

  2. You are very lucky to have seen her in person! I will be keeping my eyes open for any of her concerts in the South Jersey vicinity. I am pretty flipped out…she puts her whole soul in every note and passage.
