Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Ranks honourably among the best available ... Watkin has the advantage of outstanding continuo support and a recording of surpassing beauty and unexaggerated perspectives. If faced with a choice I'd opt for David Watkin's consistently articulate playing, the decisive criterion being Hyperion's rapturously seductive sound' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide) 'Ranks honourably among the best available ...
