Comments:Jan Hanford said:

This is an individual release that is part of the 21-disc "Gustav Leonhardt Edition." A lovely performance of these sonatas which are some of Bach's most accessible and beautiful works. I enjoyed this recording as much, if not more, than more recent recordings. The lack of reverb and extreme stereo separation of the instruments makes for an intimate recording and the details are extremely enjoyable. This is a real treasure.
