Comments:Jan Hanford said:

A wonderful set of rarely recorded keyboard works of Bach. Some of the pieces' authenticity is doubtful, and it sounds it. But they are all delightful and the performance is outstanding. Recorded close, the sound is crisp and clear.

This set is in Keyboard Works Volume 1 which is Volume 3 of the Brilliant Classics' Bach Edition, along with the Well-Tempered Clavier, Goldberg Variations, Partitas and more by various performers. The low price combined with the high quality recording and performances makes this collection a must-have. Only one negative, I did not like the performance of the Well-Tempered Clavier.
