ArtistTrevor Pinnock – harpsichord
Reviews"The playing of Trevor Pinnock is well measured and assured throughout. He is an ideal exponent of the gallant style of French harpsichord playing and his virtuosity shines through... this for me is the finest recording of the complete harpsichord pieces." – Stuart Sillitoe, “I like the unequal temperament tuning and superb timbre of the Clayson and Garrett instrument, the magnificent recording; and last but not least, Trevor Pinnock’s playing which is as persuasive as it is scholarly.” – Felix Aprahamian, BBC Record Review
