Recordings of the pedal harpsichord are as rare as the instruments themselves and not always successful. Possibly nothing will ever quite compare to E. Power Biggs' recording on a Challis instrument that was probably the most complex harpsichord ever built. Rechsteiner plays a more conventional 8' 8' 4' double on a 16' 16' 8' pedal. I have been more familiar with Rechsteiner as a nimble fingered (and footed) organist with a style that tends to the thrilling without ever losing the musicality. I am delighted to find that he is no less effective on the pedal harpsichord. Everything in this recording is enjoyable and some tracks (e.g. the BWV912 toccata) are breathtaking.

Highly recommended.

A Brilliant Bach Recital on the Pedal Harpsichord 11 Aug 2014
By Dennis E. Ferrara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bach on the Pedal Harpsichord always brings an interest for those organists who may enjoy select compositions of the master on such an instrument; of course, Bach had one in his collection of varied instruments. In recent years, the instrument has become very popular with organists and pianists alike and rightly so. Musicians may now perform the organ works of Bach without the aid of a pipe organ or computer generated instrument.
The program: Fantasia Cromatica and Fugue, BWV. 903; Sonata No. 4 en mi mineur, BWV 528; Sonata No. 1, BWV 1001; Toccata en re, BWV 912; Sonata No. 6 en sol, BWV 530; Ciaccona in D - Partita, BWV 1004; and Adagio - fr. Toccata, BWV 564.
Yves Rechsteiner is a brilliant scholar and concert organist who specializes in select composers and repertoire for select instruments. In this recital, one finds the combination of both attributes. This is stunning Bach playing on a historically interesting instrument. The performances are extremely stylish, brilliantly performed with much panache and bravura. This recital is not for the weary of heart. The program notes are very well researched and extremely well-written and make this recital even more appealing. It is a pleasure to hear such nuance and phrasing in making Bach really coming alive on the pedal harpsichord. The instrument is in warm acoustics and the performances match the sound of the instrument. Highly recommended for colleges, universities, organ scholars and anyone who loves the music of Bach. There are several compositions which will be new to most audiences for this recital.
