 Just great February 25, 2013 By Gerald M. (Brooklyn, NY) See All My Reviews "I go back a long time and I am glad to receive this "greatest hits" of harpsichord music. This may be of interest only to those of us at a certain age, but this is where it started. Most of the stuff on this disc was very new at one time, as was the playing. Most of this was updated in later versions. But for those of us who knew harpsichord from the Bach transcriptions for other instruments or from the great Landowska, these guys showed their stuff, and it has worn well. Good recordings, too."
