Comments by Jan Hanford:

A wonderful recording. The harpsichord performances are excellent and the orchestra is rich and lively. The inclusion of BWV 1061a for 2 solo harpsichords without accompaniment is very unusual, the performance is outstanding and makes owning this cd essential.

Robert Levin's several recordings in the Hanssler Edition Bachakademie are oustanding. His performances are all excellent.
