Notes & Reviews:

The repertoire on this recording was written for harpsichord during the Baroque period, generally considered to span the years 1600 to 1750. While many pianists have played Bach, Scarlatti, Handel, Rameau, and even Couperin and Froberger, few harpsichordists have come to the defense of the harpsichord repertoire on the modern piano. The program not only includes harpsichord repertoire already covered by pianists - Bach, Scarlatti, and Handel - but also features some lesser-known works that appealed to me most and that I felt worked best on the piano.

Baroque music as you have seldom heard it!
