Comments:Jan Hanford said:

Yet another beautiful (if overly expressive) performance of Bach's Musical Offering. The clarity of the lines and subtlety of performance is very enjoyable. A perfect complement to Savall's astonishingly beautiful Art of Fugue. Both are part of Savall's "Bach Testament" series, which is also available together in one volume.
