Podcast: Vincent Persichetti’s harpsichord sonatas

Born in the United States in 1915, Vincent Persichetti’s contribution to music education eventually led him to a professorship at the Juilliard School of Music. Along the way, he composed prolifically for the harpsichord, including sonatas and other works, which rendered him one of the 20th century’s most important composers for the instrument. Raymond Bisha introduces Christopher D. Lewis’ latest recording that features Persichetti’s harpsichord music in all its inventive variety, with styles that range from diatonic simplicity to complex, contrapuntal atonality.
