"Beautiful, flawless performance by Kenneth Gilbert of a hitherto unknown work, one that deserves far more promimence in the body of Baroque keyboard music that is performed, recorded, and heard today. While there have been numerous recordings of the opera ballet itself, hearing the harpsichord transcriptions is a rare treasure trove.
Played on the beautifully refined sound of a period instrument.
This set of transcriptions, the harpsichord used in this performance, and Kenneth Gilbert's rendition, are a match made in heaven.
I first heard this recording on January 31, 1980 when it was presented on Music Through the Night. It is every bit as enchanting now to listen to as it was back then.
I hope this recording will be made more available. A must for connoisseurs of Baroque keyboard music, especially French Baroque.
