Class Notes: 2013

Class of 2013

Navona Records has released French Connections, a new album of French works for harpsichord performed by Jonathan Rhodes Lee, M.A. ’07, Ph.D. ’13. The pieces selected for this collection celebrate the small, tight-knit pantheon of 17th-century French harpsichordists who helped shape the instrument’s repertoire. Music by Louis Couperin, François Couperin, and Antoine Forqueray comes alive through performances by Jonathan, with recordings engineered and mastered by multiple Grammy–winning classical music producer Brad Michel.
