The Most Superb Harpsichord Sampler
Matrina Lesko | 07/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't imagine a better sampler of harpsichord 'hits' played by one of the great stereo-era masters. A full complement of emotions is displayed here, from the most delicate and sparing texture to the most rip-roaring martial roar. If you're wondering what the harpsichord is about, or if you're already a fan and want a great sampler to play for your own delight and amusement, you cannot go wrong with this recording."
A Nice Recording
Aaron Archer | 12/30/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good recording for those who wish to acquaint themselves with this incredible 500-year-old instrument. This cd contains some of the most well-known keyboard tunes of the baroque era, and gives a good sample of the capabilities of the harpsichord. Mr. Kipnis does have a tendency toward playing pieces a bit too quickly in my opinion, however, his improvisations are quite good (especially on Handel's "Sarabande")."
Great

"This CD is very very good just what I was looking for. I highly recommend this CD if you are planning on purchasing a Harpsicord CD, this one is the best."
