Notes & Reviews:

Haugsand's recordings of music by Forqueray, Rameau and Bach in later years have consolidated his position among the most fascinating interpreters today. His highly developed sensitivity and intuitive musical understanding makes his rendering of the English Suites a revelatory experience.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
I felt I was able to hear it anew in Haugsand's interpretation. His sense of grace in the first courante of Suite No. 1 is admirable. In the repeats he spins the phrases out even longer, creating the delicious floating feeling that is typical of the best French dance music. In the courante of Suite No. 5 he preserves the feeling of the dance, even when the passagework-laden writing makes this a challenge. He plays on a harpsichord built in 1985 by Martin Skowroneck, based on anonymous 18th Century German instrument. The instrument has a round, robust tone and is well recorded here.
