Notes & Reviews:

Sono Luminus presents this group of modern works for harpsichord that takes full advantage of all of the tonal and harmonic characteristics of this dynamic instrument. This album brings a new musical spin to the instrument that is better associated with Bach, Rameau and Couperin. Towards the beginning of the 20th century, after more than a century of obscurity, the harpsichord enjoyed a conspicuous revival. This spirit of revival continues in this latest Sono Luminus release, with many of the works on 'Toccatas' written for Mr. Vinikour.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The outstanding works are Mel Powell's Recitative and Toccata Percossa, which is in a pungent neoclassical idiom, and the Meltzer, an eclectic. The first, in particular, is a delightful essay in changing rhythmic patterns, mostly in two voices - exactly what the harpsichord can do best. The release includes a Blu-ray audio CD as well as a conventional one, and the former allows the user to choose various audio setups. The sound is ideal.
