Comments:Comments by Jan Hanford:

As always, Trevor Pinnock brings us an energetic performance of some of Bach's most beautiful works. Although the concerti for single keyboard have been recorded extensively by both harpsichordists and pianists, these works have not been frequently recorded. For this reason alone this recording stands out. But, more than that, it is also a beautiful performance with the delicate, crisp sound of the harpsichord against a backdrop of lively strings. You couldn't ask for more.
