Take me for a ride, ride

"This is by far the best disc of harpsichord music I've heard. The opening fandango by Soler is one of the most immediately satisfying (and exciting) works for solo keyboard I know, outshadowing Couperin and possibly J.S. Bach. I was wary of picking up this disc since my forays into lesser known galant era composers have resulted in often tuneful but not terribly brilliant music. But this is all good stuff, and sounds great on the instrument chosen by Staier. I've really been impressed with everything I've heard him do, especially his (no longer available) recordings of Haydn's piano sonatas. And while the Boccherini selection is a partially improvised transcription of the D major guitar quintet, the questionable risk taken is well worth the results. The castanets are most welcome here, and this is truly the work of musicians enjoying themselves. An amazing disc."

"Simply the best harpsichord recording i heard for years not only because of the high quality recording but also for the interpretation and its musical value. By the way the record was awarded Diapason d' or 1999."
