Tom Beghin, keyboards

The First Naxos Blu-Ray- a recording of the complete works of Joseph Haydn for solo keyboard in nine virtual reconstructions of the rooms in which these pieces would have been originally performed, using seven specially-crafted historical keyboards. A trail-blazing project of four Blu-Ray discs featuring 14.5 hours of music with an added “picture in picture” option, plus a three-hour documentary on the “making of” the recordings, directed by award-winning director and screen-writer Robert J. Litz. A fully interactive experience, this epic set offers users the opportunity to “direct” their own performance of a short Andante for Musical Clock; by selecting from a choice of rooms and instruments users can freely navigate 63 possible combinations to experiment with sound and acoustics as if wandering the 18th century halls themselves.
