Description: These two books of harpsichord suites date from 1720 and 1733 and vary in number of dance-movements from three to seven. Many of the first book have become quite familiar, especially in recordings, but several of the second book remain rather rare and this brand-new recording is the only CD version offering both books complete (along with a brief prelude and an 11-minute transcription of an aria from the opera Rinaldo). Oddly, fromthis source, no notes at all... 4 CDs. Michael Borgstede (harpsichord).
