Mitzi Meyerson Mitzi Meyerson has been delving of late for Glossa into unjustly forgotten keyboard repertory from the Baroque. Praised by no less a critic than Nicholas Kenyon for her recording of Gottlieb Muffat’s Componimenti Musicali per il Cembalo (“Eureka! I’ve known these wonderful pieces for years, having bought an old edition of the music, but have never heard them properly performed. So it’s a joy to hear Mitzi Meyerson’s glorious realisation of these 18th-century suites, which lie at the heart of the high baroque style…”), Meyerson now turns her attention to the shadowy figure of Englishman Richard Jones. Little is known about this composer, other than that he was the leader of the Drury Lane orchestra in London, that he wrote some works for the stage as well as the Suits or Setts of Lessons for the Harpsicord or Spinet and that he died in 1744. These “Setts” are infused with a rhythmic vigour and an Italianate character which may point a possible awareness of the keyboard sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti. Jones comes from an era in English music dominated (today as in its own time) by the figure of Georg Friedrich Handel.
