Notes and Editorial Reviews
Scott Ross (1951-1989) was an American harpsichordist who was both popular and renowned for his brilliant technique and insightful interpretations. He recorded the complete works of Scarlatti, Rameau, and Couperin, three composers, along with J.S. Bach, whose music he became identified with over his brief career. Ross was also a highly respected harpsichord teacher in Canada and France.
Listening to Scott Ross play the opening of the French Overture, one can hear a true French sound, with the most intense energy and focus, his extroverted flourishes bringing this performance to a rare level.

I have never heard a recording from Scott
Ross that I didn't find excellent. Ross has an unerring sense of rhythmic flow and pacing that extends from Frescobaldi and the great Italian baroque composers to the Austro/Germanic masters including Handel and Bach.
