Notes & Reviews:

The Cembalo-Duo Leipzig present debut recordings of works from the music library of the Saxon Elector Friedrich August III (1750 - 1827), a valuable collection that includes rarely performed works for two keyboard instruments by Peter August, Joseph Schuster, Carl Heinrich Graun, and Johann Gottlieb Janitsch, as well as Joseph Haydn's better-known F major concerto. The combination of Hildegard Saretz's cembalo and Michaela Hasselt's Hammerflügel allows for a nuanced differentiation of sound not be possible if the repertoire was performed on two cembalos.
