Harmonia Podcast #123: Robert Hill Plays Bach on the Lute-Harpsichord

I’ve never met Robert Hill or seen him perform. Aside from a commercially-released recording of the Goldberg Variations, I’ve heard only one other live recorded concert of his—a bootleg cassette tape of a [198?] recital he gave at Harvard University to inaugurate a newly-acquired Italian harpsichord (built by David Sutherland). I can still hear in my head his uniquely beautiful interpretation of Louis Couperin’s A-minor prelude.

It’s an absolute pleasure to feature Hill on the podcast.
