Comments:Stephen Carey said:

A recording of the first printing from 1747 with historical instruments according to a reconstruction by Christoph Wolf. The recording is worth hearing as it is true to the first printing, also the contrast between the fortepiano and the cembalo provides a rather nice introduction to the piece.
