As the name suggests, a claviorganum is a keyboard instrument with a harpsichord and an organ part, which can be played individually or together over one or two manuals. While this instrument may seem like a curiosity today, many sources confirm that “curiosities” on the European continent from the 15th to the 17th century were the rule rather than the exception.

There was a variety of different keyboard instruments at that time, but which instrument should be used for a particular work is usually not precisely defined. Therefore, it is extremely interesting to try to establish the connection between an instrument and a particular repertoire. This is the task that Il Gardellino and Bart Naessens have set themselves with the present recording.

Handel’s organ Concertos, Op. 7 were written at a time when the composer was more than ever in search of the perfect instrument. Although there is no evidence that Handel knew the Claviorganum, but it is very likely. The present recording shows that the claviorganum sounds quite outstanding in the selected repertoire, both as a solo and as a continuo instrument.
