Een concert van Timothy Roberts, waarbij hij muziek van de familie Bach speelde op allerlei authentieke klavieren (behalve merkwaardig genoeg op het meest voor de hand liggende instrument: het klavecimbel), heb ik opgenomen van BBC-radio op 1/7/95 en is terug te vinden op de cassette die voornamelijk aan Pergolesi is gewijd.

The English music director and early-keyboard specialist, Timothy Roberts, was a music scholar at Cambridge University and studied harpsichord at The Guildhall School of Music under the late Christopher Kite, and with Jill Severs. He is working as an accompanist, director or soloist on harpsichord, organ, fortepiano or clavichord in many areas of music from the 16th to the 19th century.

Timothy Roberts is principal keyboard player of The Gabrieli Consort and Players, appearing on many of their award-winning discs. He has toured widely with His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts whom he recently directed in an acclaimed Hyperion recording of Gabrieli’s 1597 Canzonas and Sonatas. In the field of Baroque and Classical song he has accompanied many outstanding singers including Emma KirkbyCatherine BottJulia GoodingRufus Müller and John Mark Ainsley. Directing his own ensemble, Invocation, he has made a series of pioneering recordings of Georgian vocal music for Hyperion. His many recitals for BBC Radio 3 have ranged from Renaissance harpsichord works to sonatas by Mozart and by British composers, and he has twice been featured on the BBC’s ‘Spirit of the Age’ series.

Timothy Roberts has published numerous editions of early music, most recently with Oxford University Press. (Aryeh Oron, Hyperion website, January 2003)
