An excellent recording for those interested in early Bach harpsichord music. Miss Wuyts Performs on two authentic mid-eighteenth century French Harpsichords: a 1774 Jacques Goerman and a 1754 Henri Hemsch. Both instruments are tuned using the Werckmeister No.3 system to the Pitch a=435. Scholarly program notes are provided, including the source material for each work with approximate dates of composition. A must for the hardcore Bach collector!

This recording is also released as Keyboard Works Volume 1 which is Volume 3 of the Brilliant Classics' Bach Edition, along with the Well-Tempered Clavier, Goldberg Variations, Partitas and more by various performers. The low price combined with the high quality recording and performances makes this collection a must-have.
A wonderful set of rarely recorded keyboard works of Bach. A few of the pieces' authenticity is doubtful, and it sounds it. But they are all delightful and the performance is outstanding.
