The FitzTanner Collection doffs its cap in the direction of this seminal ancient tome by borrowing some of the more fanciful and suggestive titles from which it is comprised, but beyond this there is no musical connection with the original pieces at all.
And yet, stirred into the mix, is my fondness for melding together bygone musical styles. Hence, this album of piano pieces, pitched at the more robust intermediate pianist, combines quirky originality with older musical styles, drawing inspiration not just from Renaissance dances and fantasies, but from more elaborate Baroque and Classical styles, too.
That said, the music is conceived very much with the qualities of the modern piano in mind and hence requires a good many pedal effects, dynamics and plenty of expression.
What emerges is, I hope, a collection of attractive piano pieces which cheerfully bear the traces of a time when the modern piano was but a twinkle in the eye.
