Nato in seno al Festival un anno dopo, il Wanda Landowska Harpsichord Competition è uno dei più grandi concorsi di clavicembalo che ogni anno registra iscrizioni da tutto il mondo: Polonia, Russia, Ucraina, Giappone, Spagna, Francia, Albania, ecc. Si configura come una grande opportunità di crescita nell’attuale panorama musicale.
Wanda Aleksandra Landowska (5 July 1879 – 16 August 1959) was a Polish-French harpsichordist whose performances, teaching, recordings, and writings played a large role in reviving the popularity of the harpsichord in the early 20th century. She was the first person to record Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations on the harpsichord (1933). She became a naturalized French citizen in 1938.
Landowska was something of a sound engineering wonk and worked closely with engineers to realize the huge variety of effects that her big harpsichord was capable of. This is a propitious time for the re-release of these classic recordings: there's an extreme spirit afoot in the world of Baroque recordings, and it's one that Wanda Landowska would have loved. If you're a fan of Janine Jansen's Vivaldi or of any of the Young Turks of the harpsichord, sample this set to see where it all began.
