Notes & Reviews:

Sometimes, commercial risks can become unexpected bestsellers! In keeping with 18th-century home entertainment preferences, the Evil Penguin asked keyboard virtuoso Benjamin-Joseph Steens to record Bach's Goldberg Variations on a clavichord instead of a harpsichord, and this recording became a hit (first on YouTube, now on CD)! On his new album, Steens confronts the delicacy of his clavichord with the colorful intimacy of Jacques-Antoine Bresch's flute, in an unprecedented exploration of keyboard and flute music.
