The Toccata Settima of early Baroque composer Girolamo Frescobaldi creates a melancholic landscape through chromaticism, one of two distinct voices showcased in Jean Rondeau's album Melancholy Grace. Discover: https://w.lnk.to/jrmLY

The French harpsichordist envisions this recording as two faces of melancholy: one expressed through chromaticism, the other through the musical expression of tears. He emphasizes this dialogue through the use of different instruments and distinct, unequal temperament according to each piece.

For the chromatic pieces of the program, including this piece by Frescobaldi, he records on an Italian-style harpsichord made by Philippe Humeau in 2007 after an anonymous early-18th-century model.
