This recording was recorded before Book 1, so the sound is different and little clangy and resonant. But Leonhardt's playing is worth it. His tempos are excellent (slower than typically), and his use of a variety of the stops on the harpsichord is delightful. I can see why his is a performance by which others are measured. Very highly recommended.
