One of the lesser known composers of the mid 18th century, Turin born Joseph Nicolas Pancrace Royer relocated to Paris, where he earned a reputation as a formidable harpsichordist. He was in the service of Louis XV for many years, and wrote many operas and ballets for the court at Versailles. Royer's harpsichord works bear the hallmarks of his work in the musical theatre.
In a preface to the Premier Livre de Pièces pour Clavecin, the composer states that the "pieces are open to great variety, passing from the tender to the lively, from the simple to the tumultuous, often successively within the same piece". They also show the impact of his work in the musical theatre, with several being arrangements of instrumental numbers from his operas.
Yago Mahugo, prizewinner at the International Harpsichord Competition and at the Bruggen Competition (Belgium), leads an active concert life and has performed in many of the most prestigious concert halls and festivals throughout Europe and the USA.
