Notes & Reviews:

"Danish harpsichordist Lars Ulrik Mortensen occupies an elevated position in my league table, perhaps above all for his understanding not only of Bach's keyboard music but also that of north German composers like Buxtehude. His blend of stylish virtuosity and tasteful discretion are the most obvious of many virtues that make this disc promising overture to the forthcoming series." ***** - Nicholas Anderson, BBC

Classics Today
This fine recording is highly recommended both to those in search of a first contemporary account of these seminal concertos as well as to listeners looking for a first-rate supplementary cycle.
