 outstanding value February 9, 2019 By j. shelton (Alsea, OR) See All My Reviews "I was very pleasantly surprised by this boxed set of Handel suites. The playing is reminiscent of Wanda Landowska which is about as high praise as I can endow. The quality of the recording is excellent. This is a set of disks that will be played a lot." Report Abuse
 Surprise February 9, 2014 By David S. (Fenelon Falls, ON) See All My Reviews "It tuns out that I had been underestimating Handel's prowess on the harpsichord. This recording is simply wonderful. The music varies from the flamboyant to the reflective but it is always surprisingly refreshing & stimulating. I had no idea that Handel was such an accomplished keyboard composer. This recording reveals a new aspect of the composer's talents & the virtuosity of Michael Borgstede." Report Abuse
