Comments:When I heard this version of the Italian Concerto, it seemed to me that Scott Ross could have composed the piece himself... Extremely well-played, on a very nice sounding harpsichord. The Duetto is just about the same. One simply must hear it. The rest of the recording: What he accomplished on this instrument, I wasn't aware of it's possibilities...(I am an amateur player myself)
Just get it. You won't be sorry.
