Pianist and composer Kit Armstrong steps back in time to revive the spirit of the early English composers William Byrd andJohn Bull in his Deutsche Grammophon debut album. Exploring a remarkable legacy of works originally written for organ or the virginal – close relative of the harpsichord – William Byrd · John Bull – The Visionaries of Piano Music is set for release on 9 July 2021. In the notes that accompany the double-disc album, Armstrong discusses the composers' immeasurable contribution to keyboard music, their contrasting means of expression, and his own approach to performing sixteenth-century repertoire on a modern instrument.
