Comments:Peter Watchorn said:

A new recording of Bach's earliest harpsichord masterpieces performed by one of America's leading Bach exponents on an Australian-made copy of a harpsichord by the German builder, J. H. Harrass from around 1710. This is an instrument of immense power and presence, and the recording gives a completely new perspective on these great works. With extensive program notes (in four languages) by the performer.
