 Great performance and a good bargain April 3, 2012 By Richard H. (Glendale, AZ) See All My Reviews "This is a rerelease of the the concertos which I own the original on Loiseau-Lyre. Lubin is great on piano forte as is Hogwood and the AAM. Unfortunately I don't have the sonatas included in my release so I can't comment. I have written a letter to Decca requesting the missing works but have not heard back from them as yet.
