Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Ton Koopman's admirable Philips Duo set covers the 14 concertante Haydn keyboard works listed in the Hoboken catalogue now thought to be authentic. As sound, these recordings could hardly be bettered: the balance is finely judged and the acoustic warm, with detail registered perfectly. The performances are alive and highly accomplished. This invites the strongest recommendation." – Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition] "Ton Koopman's admirable Philips Duo set covers the 14 concertante Haydn keyboard works listed in the Hoboken catalogue now thought to be authentic.

 Koopman at his best March 29, 2013 By E. Pederson (Fairfax, VA) See All My Reviews "This collection of all of Haydn's concertos for harpsichord is a fine addition to any recording library. Few harpsichordists match and none exceed Koopman's artistry, and the Haydn concertos allow him to display that artistry to its fullest." Report Abuse
