Comments:Andrea Sanguinetti said:

I think that this recording is an equilibrate mix between philological research and modern interpretation. Gustav Leonhard gives a philological exact interpretation of Bach's articulation and fraseggio, but with a richer sound than Harnoncourt, for example. I think it's the most 'exact' interpretation I've ever heard
