Comments:Louis Salvador said:

The unusual choice of one the best italian baroque organ I have heard so far and the liveliness and precision of Genevieve Soly's performance breathe new life into those "german" transcriptions of well known italian concertos. The recording was sponsored by the baroque music society "Les Idees Heureuses".
