Comments:Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni said:

A classic performance in the style of Huguette Dreyfus: clean and impeccable. Interesting to compare with Kenneth Gilbert's version.

Jan Hanford:

Huguette Dreyfus has been one of my favorite harpsichords since I started listening to Bach in the 1960's. I buy whatever she has recordings that I can find. She is extraordinary; this recording is perfect in every way.
