Notes & Reviews:

Alpha pays homage to Gustav Leonhardt in a lavish box set comprising the last five recordings made by this great pioneer. The set also includes tributes from musicians and collaborators such as Philippe Herreweghe, Elisabeth Joyé, and Gilles Cantagrel, and the booklet presents a gallery of unpublished photographs.

These recordings take us on a fabulous journey into the world of keyboard works from late Renaissance to late Baroque, and explore a fascinating diversity of instruments (harpsichords, the hybrid claviorganum, and the extraordinary Dom Bedosorganof Sainte-Croix in Bordeaux). The last one, for which Leonhardt was artistic director and organist, is his final recording; it is devoted to secular cantatas by J. S. Bach, performed by the ensemble Café Zimmermann.
