Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Hogwood has a fluent and assured way with this often elusive style. His preludes without barlines come over with lyricism and a feeling for poetry. . . . His wonderfully fluid account of the great 'Tombeau de Monsieur de Blancrocher' is proof in itself that he is very much au courant with the French keyboard school." -- Nicholas Anderson, Gramophone "Hogwood has a fluent and assured way with this often elusive style.
