Passacaille Records – New release: Johan Huys. Ceci n’est pas une passacaille
Flemish composer Johan Huys is equally proficient on all keyboard instruments, but he is best known as a harpsichordist. He was president of the competition at the MA Festival Bruges for 39 years. For this world-famous competition, which is inextricably linked to him, he composed several pieces for harpsichord, including the compulsory work for the 2018 harpsichord competition: Ceci n’est pas une passacaille. His former pupil Guy Penson has recorded this and other outstanding harpsichord works by Johan Juys for this new Passscaille album.
