Harpsichordist to Perform at JBU
Siloam Springs, Ark. (March 30, 2006) — John Brown University’s music department is pleased to present harpsichordist John Paul as part of its Lyceum series on Tuesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Jones Recital Hall. The concert is free and open to the general public. Paul tours extensively throughout the United States and has also toured overseas in England, Ireland and the Republic of Panama. His passion lies in playing keyboard instruments, especially the organ and harpsichord.
Paul will perform the pieces of Jacques DuPhly, one of the last French clavecinists in the mid-1700s.
A critic once said, “John Paul has the technique to encompass all DuPhly’s frequently virtuosic demands, playing with great clarity, and articulating ornaments cleanly and giving every impression of being thoroughly at home with his style.”
