Comments:OTSUKA, Shuichi said:

A crisp and vivid performance of Bach's double and quadruple harpsichord concertos. I understand some people don't like Koopman's (extensive) use of ornamentation, but I am convinced this recording is one of the best interpretatition of those concertos. (The Erato version may be out of production, but a value-for-money version is available from Warner.)
