Notes & Reviews:

Handel's harpsichord music may have languished in the shadow of Bach's more famed mastery of the instrument, but as these new recordings and scholarly notes by Michael Borgstede show, such comparisons are inappropriate. Handel was known as a superb keyboard player, and these dance suites exploit the expressive and technical resources of his instrument with no less mastery than that of his Leipzig counterpart, and with a joie de vivre that makes listening a constant diversion and delight.

Gramophone Magazine
his playing is consistent in its textural clarity, crisp ornamentation and level-headed grasp of the music.
