Notes & Reviews:

Legendary harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt presents a most unusual program inspired by a fabled harpsichord duel that took place at the court of the Elector of Dresden in 1649. Matthias Weckman and Johann Jacob Froberger were keyboard virtuosos playing and writing music at the dawn of the Baroque era.
