Comments:Simon Crouch said:

This 5-pack contains 3 CDs devoted to Bach keyboard playing from another age. Beauty and singing legato are the watchwords here. Highly recommended especially at the low price (in Europe at least!) If you like this one, then Volume III (Rameau, Scarlatti and Couperin) and Volume I (more recent French works) are also very good.
